Is housing allowance included on the W2 in box 3 and 5?
Our pastor receives a housing allowance and I need to know where to properly enter it on the W2.
Now I know that it doesn't go in box 1 but I am new to the financial staff and I have seen previous W2s, where the income was entered in box 1 but the income and the housing allowance amount was entered in box 3 and 5.
The housing allowance was also entered in box 14.
I need to know if your pastor has social security and medicare taxes withheld from his income then do you only report your taxable income in box 3 and 5 or do you also include your housing in these boxes as well?
