Question: Christian Non-profit & Rental Fee

by Robert Geraghty

Dear Church Community,

Fall greetings!

I run a Christian non-profit out of my house and am interested in renting out a room to a member of my church in Maine.

Do I need to report this money as "income" if I deposit the "rental fee," into my non-profit checking account?

Thank you for your 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 =)
