We have a minister who we pay $250 for each time he speaks at our church, so he is not an employee?
He has asked that instead of making the check out to him, that we pay for his seminary schooling by giving the money to the school as partial payment for his tuition.
Is that legal? I think we can get in trouble for doing that, but I don't know where to find the answer in the IRS documents.

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 =)
