Pastors tax liability.
by Mike Baldwin
I'm a Youth Pastor trying yet again to get a grasp on my taxes. I'm paid 35,200 total a year and it breasks down as such. 13,200 for housing and 6,000 for medical leaving 16,000 in ministerial. I have witheheld from my check 15.3% percent and the church makes payments to the IRS from that. I was told by H and R that I have not paid enough in taxes that I'm still liable for more taxes. Can you help me to undestand? Mike
