New Clergy Housing Ruling
On Friday, October 6, 2017, Judge Barbara Crabb of the Federal District Court of the Western District of Wisconsin ruled that the exclusion from taxation of a minister’s cash housing allowance is unconstitutional. The exclusion allows a minister to exclude from taxable income a cash housing allowance designated and paid by his or her church.
The Church Alliance, a coalition of the chief executive officers of 38 church benefit programs that CPG works with on legislative and regulatory matters, prepared a summary of the ruling that you can view here as well as Q&A about the ruling. We believe that this decision almost certainly will be appealed, and we will continue to monitor the case and keep you abreast of future updates.
