Each local church is urged to set a parsonage allowance for the pastor. This must be done prior to January 1, 2011 because parsonage allowances cannot be retroactive according the Internal Revenue Service. This form may be used to estimate the amount and have the church set it accordingly. REMEMBER, RETAIN A COPY FOR YOUR PERSONAL RECORDS AND FOR YOUR LOCAL CHURCH RECORDS. In the event of an IRS audit, this form will be required. CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO ENLARGE AND PRINT A COPY
