love offerings made out to the pastor
by: Anonymous in NC

If the church sponsored the love offering, then direction should have gone to the parishioners to make the check to the church with a note for "pastor's love offering", that is so the church can be accountable in their records. Cash gifts to the pastor are always taxable income to him/her. If one hands a gift check to his/her pastor made out directly to him/her, then the pastor is responsibility to report it as income on tax forms.

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 =)
