Interim Ministry Question

by Chas Mohr
(Illinois)

We hired an interim pastor who resides out of our area. He is requesting that based upon the fact that his employment will be less than 12 months, an amount be designated as HA which can applied to his permanent residence.

Based on several internet articles, he states that if employed more than 12 months, he is not permitted to do this.

However, less than 12 months, he is permitted. We are providing a parsonage. Is he correct? What is the basis of the 12 month rule?

12 Month Rule?
by: Vickey

I've never heard of it? Can he provide documentation for that "rule"?

Maybe one of my readers can shed some light on this?

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 =)
