What happens if we paid our pastor like a regular employee?
When I became the bookkeeper at our church the two staff pastors were both being paid as regular employees with the church paying ss tax and the pastor having ss tax witheld. ADP just sent their W-2's and there are wages listed in the ss and med boxes. Is this ok? Or are churches not allowed to pay the ss tax and treat the pastors like regular employees?
Thank you so much!
