Paint for parsonage

by Lynda
(Iowa)

We have a new interim pastor and he has agreed to do some painting at the parsonage that the church provides to him as part of his package. What category does the paint get charged to? Housing allowance or building and ground maintenance repair? He has been advised by someone in the congregation that it is pastoral reimbursables.

For my bookkeeping knowledge it seems to me that this is not a pastoral reimburse able.

Thanks in advance for the help.

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 =)
