Reporting Housing Allowance on a W-2

by Stacey
(Clovis, CA)

I am receiving conflicting information regarding reporting a housing allowance on a W-2--how much of our pastor's housing allowance must be reported on his W-2 in Box 14?

I have had one Treasurer say 50% and a couple of others say 100%.

Any information on this would be helpful.

God Bless.

You would report 100% of the paid housing allowance payments in Box 14 of the minister's W-2.
