I have been approached by someone employed by a registered not-for-profit ministry to ask if we would "second" him.
By that he means we would officially employ him as a minister of the Gospel and we would in turn get reimbursed by his not-for-profit ministry for all employee expenses. He would then qualify for a clergy housing allowance.
He described this as a fairly typical and accepted practice but I have never heard of this. It also seems as a bit of an questionable way around IRS rules.
Is this to your knowledge a common and IRS approved practice? Or is it a novel way around accepted IRS policies for clergy allowance?
