W-2 vs 1099
(Cedar City, Utah)
I was recently elected to the council of a small church that annually contracts with a retired ordained minister to serve as our pastor. He is 74 and collects social security. A portion of his salary is designated as a housing allowance and he is provided a 1099.
Based upon info that I have read elsewhere at this site, this practice may be questionable. However, I haven't discovered a situation that mirrors ours, that is retired, annual contract, etc. I would welcome any thoughts regarding our pastoral arrangement with respect to a W-2 vs a 1099.
