I have a designated amount for housing/parsonage allowance on my W2 however the actual expenses were higher. How do I enter that on Turbo Tax? Do I enter the designated W2 amount in the "Housing Allowance" box and the actual higher amount in the "Qualifying Expenses" box?
You don’t get a deduction if your actual expenses are
higher than your parsonage allowance. On that screen, enter the lowest of these
- Your qualified housing expenses
- The fair rental value of your housing expenses plus utilities, or
- Your housing or parsonage allowance
