[Q & A] Tax Breaks for Ministers With No Housing Allowance?

[Q & A] Tax Breaks for Ministers With No Housing Allowance?
April 14, 2021 | by BELINDA WHITFIELD,

Find out whether there are any housing related tax breaks available to a minister that doesn’t receive a housing allowance.

Video Transcript:

Hi, Belinda Whitfield and today is open Q&A day and I’m taking a question from my inbox and the questions is:

Currently, I do not receive any compensation from the ministry [apparently, this is a pastor] are there any housing allowance related items or expenses that we incur that can be written off on our taxes?

Well, if you are not receiving a housing allowance, that’s not a good thing for you. But in any event, you can still take the normal tax deductions that homeowners can take. You can claim a tax deduction for your mortgage interest that you are paying and as well as your property taxes on your home. You can claim those deductions on Schedule A of your tax return.

If you still have any questions, visit my website at churchcpa.com. Just go to my contact us page and submit your questions. Thank you so much and have a great day.
