Only paid our pastor a housing allowance, still issue a W-2?

If all we paid was a housing allowance, do we still issue the pastor a W-2?

Yes you can. Report it in Box 14 on the W-2. Leave the rest blank.

Or, you can just include the amount of the allowance in a letter to the minister.

See this post for an example of notification letter.
