View Full Version : W2 Box 14 Other Income

09-07-2008, 05:29 AM
I do payroll for a church. I need to pay a pastor regular wages (box 1) and a housing allowance which goes in Box 14, Other.

Can I accomplish this by creating 2 employee records for the same person, paying regular wages under one employee record and paying the housing allowance under another record & have it show in box 14?

No you would have two W2 Forms if you did that. What others have done was to setup a Deduction marked as housing like we show in the example company for Auto Reimbursement. Do not mark it as non Taxable as you will enter it as a negative number on pay day which adds it to the net pay but not the gross pay. Also mark it for box 14.

Then on pay day, use the pay button to calculate the pay and after that enter the allowance in the deduction as a negative number such as:


Then press the Tab key to recalculate the Net check and Save an Close.
