Corey Pfaffe writes at the MinistryCPA blog. He has a lot of good comments. Suggest you visit his site once in a while. Two posts I wanted to mention specifically:
This post discusses two questions on payments to the widow of a former pastor. One question addresses compensation and the other health care costs.
This post discusses whether a minister of the gospel can qualify for housing allowance when employed by a mission organization.
As always, do not take comments by a CPA beyond the facts mentioned. These are technical areas and these answers can be stretched too far. Get help from a CPA familiar with the NPO community if you have a specific issues. I’ve listed a number of firms on my blogroll at the right that could help, along with my firm, of course.
