Section 107 [Parsonage] Allowance

Federal law provides that a cleric can exclude from income tax (not from self-employment tax, that is, Social Security and Medicare taxes) eligible housing expenses.  This is known as a “parsonage” or “housing” allowance.  Click on the respective links for a model resolution for use by the vestry and a worksheet to assist you in calculating the amount of the allowance.
