if a pastor is considered an employee and received a w2 from the church, with deductions of Medicare and social security can he still claim a deduction for office in home. Even if office is provided at the church.

office in home deduction for pastor. . .

Please be advised to read "Ministers taxes" at the link to the left of this web site, especially concerning pastor's social security taxes.

Also, a home office deduction for the pastor is not impossible, but it becomes more difficult if a church office is provided for the pastor to perform most of his/her pastoral duties. This should be left to the pastor and his/her tax preparer to figure out.

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 =)
