State and local income tax withholding for ministers
You've stated that a church cannot withhold income taxes for a minister. It's clear from the IRS documents that this applies to federal income tax, but does it also apply to state and local income taxes?
I thought that ministers were exempt form income tax withholding on a state level too, but thanks to the generous reader posting the comment below...I discovered that it is a state by state regulation and you will need to check with not only your state agency...but the local office as well.
