Consequences for Retiring Pastor AND Church
by: Vickey

HUGE!!! At the very least ...the value of the home would be taxable income for him...but private inurement would be the biggest factor and could put your church's tax exemption in jeopardy.

Please consult a knowledgeable professional before doing this!

I can highly recommend Elaine Sommerville with out of Dallas, TX.

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 =)
