Clergy received W-2 for $35K and has $34k worth of housing allowance so net income should be $1k. But return shows entire $35K as taxable income. What am I doing wrong?

Why does the W2 show 35? Shouldn't it show 1?

Maybe??  I thought that putting the $34 in Part II D and checking the box in F4 (he has the form 4361)  in the W-2 Worksheet would offset the income but it doesn't change the return at all.

Was a parsonage supplied by the church or clergy?

How much total was he paid?  35K or 69K ?  Does he have another source of income, or does he feed himself and family for $20 a week?

35K is in Box 1 of the W-2?  It shouldn't be.
