What parts of pastor's compensation is included on 941 line 2?

by SDM
(Springfield, MO)

I would like to make sure I am completing my quarterly 941 correctly with regard to our Pastor's compensation. Here are sample (not actual) amounts:

Monthly Salary: $3,500
Monthly Housing Allowance: $3,500
Monthly Social Security Offset/Allowance: $300
Monthly 403b Contribution Withheld From Pay: $50
Monthly Church Matching 403b contribution: $50
Monthly Insurance and Pension Premium: $1,500

Which of these amounts are included in the amount on line 2 of my monthly IRS 941 form entitled "Wages, tips, and other compensation?"

Thank you!

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 =)
