What if minister under-declared housing for entire year?
Before the new year comes, our pastor's fill out and sign a Salary Alignment detailing how much they are designating for their Base Salary and Housing Allowance.
One of our pastor's reported 21,000 as housing allowance and 19,000 and his base salary for 2015. He went to do his taxes and "thought" he had increased his housing allowance mid-year when he purchased his first home.
His accountant wants me to amend his W-2. Is that legal or necessary? How can you increase your housing allowance therefore decreasing Base-Salary after-the-fact?
