My salary is 15,000 a year. I know my housing allowance is going to be more than that. My mortgage alone is about 18,000. I guess my question is can I just designate the entire 15,000 for mortgage?

Hope you are talking about the upcoming 2015 tax year instead of 2014. It is too late to talk about creating a housing allowance for 2014.

100 Percent Housing Allowace
by: Vickey

Your church can designate and approve your entire salary as a housing allowance. However, remember that a housing allowance cannot be retroactive, so the 100% designation can only be from the day it is board approved.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
