Is it a bad decision for the pastor to take a housing allowance due to the SE tax?
by Ann Fairchild
We chose the housing allowance because we thought it avoided payroll taxed for our church. It appears that it will now double our finacial responsibilities on that money since we will owe 15.3 % and the church pays nothing.
