Church Payroll Made Easy

Your energy should be focused on ministry obligations, not payroll. Paychex Payroll for churches allows you to be free of payroll and tax responsibilities while we handle the IRS regulations required of places of worship.

How can Paychex help with church payroll and taxes?

Paychex reduces the complexity and risk of running your own church payroll by helping you stay in compliance with special clergy payroll and tax reporting. Just submit your payroll through phone, fax, or online and we'll take care of the following:

  • Paying church employees with the correct tax requirements. Ministers and non-ministers have different Federal Income Tax requirements.
  • Filing multiple IRS and state forms every quarter and year. Each state's regulations can differ for tax payment requirements, remittance, form-filing obligations, state income tax, and unemployment and disability insurances.
  • Staying up-to-date with the Clergy Housing Allowance Clarification Act of 2002, which allows ministers to exclude a portion of their church salary as a housing allowance on their gross income for federal tax purposes.
