Minister's housing allowance

cyndycpa
Level 2

i have several ministers who work for a religious college.  The school allows them to designate a housing allowance.  The seminary withholds the SS & MC taxes on the housing allowance and remits it to IRS.  On the W-2 worksheet I have input the housing allowance and the housing expenses and have NOT marked any box for paying self employment tax on the housing allowance or W-2 wages.  However Pro-Series automatically calculates and imposes SE tax on the housing allowance, remember NO boxes are checked for Pro Series to do this.  How can I get the program to not impose the SE tax on the housing allowance?

If you cannot correct that is it possible to override it? Then you may have to disable error conversion check box before wiring it.. Not sure... just my opinion
