Our current pastor has been receiving a 1099 & in reading your site I think he should be getting a W-2. How to start the process? Do you have to have software programs etc? We are a very small church.

sign up for W-2 W-3
by: Sandi

start here: http://www.ssa.gov/employer/
you will need the church to sign a letter they send and once you get that mailed in you can do the W-2/W-3 online

so much better than paying someone else to file for you :-)
Our church makes the council review the W-2 against the book reports prior to the final submission.

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 =)
