Mileage from home to work.

Do Not reimburse your minister for travel back and forth from his home to the church (it is considered commuting miles).

What if the minister's office is in his home rather than the church? Does this qualify him to receive mileage from home to church?

Office in your Home

According to IRS Topic 514:

"Although commuting costs aren't deductible, some local transportation expenses are. Deductible local transportation expenses include the ordinary and necessary expenses of going from one workplace (away from the residence) to another. If you have an office in your home that you use as your principal place of business for your employer, you may deduct the cost of traveling between your home office and work places associated with your employment."

It is considered a legitimate business expense "if you have an office in your home that you use as your principal place of business". If that boils down to what your church's accountable reimbursement plan allows =)

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
