Is a pastor's housing allowance used as income to calculate child support

My husband is a Pastor and receives a letter yearly for 20,000 in housing allowance. He does not receive cash in hand for this but my understanding is that this is considered a form of non taxable income to some degree. Should this be somehow included in the formula to determine child support?

I have a copy of the most recent letter the deacons signed giving him this benefit.

Thanks!

Income to calculate child support?
by: Anonymous in NC

If your (pastor) husband's income that is approved for housing is not used for housing, then it would be taxable, so in my non-lawyer's mind, that portion (then) should be considered in the child support calculation. Otherwise, that $20,000 of his income should not be considered. Hope that makes sense.

here is the link to the IRS worksheet, if you need it, to figure the tax exempt amount of his housing allowance. http://www.irs.gov/publications/p517/ar02.html#en_US_2012_publink100033704
