How do I report w2 income for a minister to make it taxable for self employment taxes when no social security wages were paid
There is a table here for whether the W2 should have had FICA, for if there is some activity for the person as SE, etc:
And read this:
Line 2, Schedule SE. There's probably a box to check on the W-2 entry worksheet to indicate that's what it is.
When you are filling out the w2 worksheet, go to part 2, and that part is for clergy info. Just check the box that applies to your client, also do not check to automatically calculate lines 3-6 and 16 at the beginning of worksheet.
