we as a church pay half of ministers $2500 medical insurance deductible.

This is not done through the insurance company it is part of our agreement with him.

Do we add that to his total salary as income?

Taxable .... unless ...

It would be taxable income ... unless you have a "legal "HRA (Health Reimbursement Arrangement) set up to reimburses employees for qualified medical expenses.

What I.R.C. would you use to justify paying the health insurance directly and being tax free. And, what I.R.C. would you use for the insurance being tax free if a HRA was set up? I am an accounting student and was wondering.

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 =)
