Licensed Minister - not paid by church

by Linda Kreitz
(Easton, PA)

I will become a "licensed minister" with my church next year. There is no compensation for this. It is volunteer.

As a "licensed minister" I would like to know which expenses I can take as a deduction. I would be doing this as a part-time volunteer job (no compensation).

I will be using my cell phone, a small office in my house, my car, my computer, misc. office expenses, etc...

I have read a lot online on what a PAID pastor can deduct. I have not found anything with regards to a licensed minister who does the pastoral work as a part-time non-paid volunteer.

Can you point me to anyone who has an accounting expertise in this area?
