I understand that the IRS allows that housing allowance is not included in gross income. But what about state tax laws.
Do they follow the IRS guideline and allow the exclusion of housing allowance as well.
I live in California and am not sure what to make of the housing allowance exclusion for state laws.

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 =)
