Qualifications as a "minister" per IRS/Tax definition and Housing Allowance
I am a pastor of a Church through a recognized denomination.
I will be installed (commissioned?), however I am not "ordained."
From what I understand, you can not take a housing allowance (my own home) if you are not the equivalent of an ordained minister.
The only duty I can not perform currently legally in PA is to marry others. Does anyone know, does this qualify me for a housing allowance? Thank you!
