Pastor's W2 sent to SSA and state tax office?

by Paul
(Charlottesville, VA 22901)

Our church gives the Pastor a W2. He has opted out of Social Security and no taxes are taken out for federal or state as he pays estimated taxes himself. At year's end when we file 1099's on gifts to other ministries that we send to the state and social security administration, should we send a copy of the Pastor's W2 to any of these organizations as well? If so, would we send it with a W3 and we have no state booklet becasue no state taxes are paid.
