How to reimburse pastor for a cash payment he made to contractor

by Tom

One of our church members cleans our building for $50/week, which I normally write a check for. One week I was out sick and the pastor paid him out of his own pocket the $50 (cash).

The next weekend, I wrote a check to the pastor for his weekly payment plus the $50 that he paid to the cleaner.

I want to record this so that:
a) $50 of the check shows up as re-imbursement to the pastor - not part of his weekly pay
b) it shows up in the cleaner's 1099 data

How do I do that so that each one is properly credited?

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 =)
