Re: how to set up clergy housing in payroll

Welcome to the Community, Joyce3453.

I'd be happy to help you set the clergy housing allowance via QuickBooks Desktop.


I can provide you with easy steps on how to set up the clergy housing allowance. 


Here's how:


  1. Choose Lists > Payroll Item List.
  2. Select the Payroll Item button and select New.
  3. Select Custom Setup and click Next.
  4. Under Payroll Item Type, select Addition and select Next.
  5. Enter a name for the item (for example, Clergy Housing) and select Next.
  6. If applicable, change the expense account from Payroll Expenses to something else. Select Next.
  7. To select the Tax Tracking Type, use the chart below. If you have any questions, consult an accountant or payroll professional. Select Next.
  8. Taxes default based on the Tax Tracking Type you selected in the previous window. Select Next.
  9. For Calculate Based on Quantity, select Neither and select Next. For Gross vs. Net, select Gross and select Next.
  10. If you want, enter the Default Rate and Limit now. You can also select the employee's rate and limit when the item is added to the employee profile.
  11. Hit Finish.

You can now add this payroll item to your employee's profile.
