Atheists Attack Minister’s Income

In this morning’s Tennessean (Nashville’s major newspaper),  there is an article about an atheist group who is suing the federal government over minister’s “housing allowance.”    The housing allowance is a tax break for ministers that has existed since the 1920’s.    It doesn’t appear that this is a legitimate threat, but this article highlights an issue you may not be aware of.   I know this tax break has been very useful to me, especially since a minister is considered “self-employed” by the IRS, so we have to pay our own self-employment tax.    If you want to learn more about this issue, read the article here.
