Love Offerings for Ministers in Pastor's Absence
Can I as a pastor issue my ministers who minister in my absence a love offering?
Yes you can; however, it will be taxable income for them as it is for a service. You will need them to fill out a W-9 and have it on file. Then if you give them $600 or more cumulative in a calendar year, you should send him a 1099-MISC
from the church.
