Both clergy and non-clergy income from same employer

**This message is a duplicate--see other post for response.

 

For the first two months of 2023, I worked as clergy with my employer. I was laid off but received a severance equivalent to five months salary, plus a payout of benefits.  Almost immediately, I transitioned into an hourly role with the same employer that continues to today.  For 2023, I received only one W-2 from the employer--it records my clergy income, a portion of my (former) clergy housing allowance, and the hourly income and withholding from my current role as well.

 

Because I have clergy income, I am selecting "pay self-employment tax on my wages and housing allowance" as I have in past years. However, as I understand it, this means I am paying self-employment tax on my hourly employee wage as well, because it's all lumped together on the W-2.

 

If I had separate W-2 forms for each role--one for my clergy income and one for my hourly employee income--it seems my tax responsibility would be much less.  However, I reached out to my employer and they said only one W-2 can be issued.  Am I just out of luck because my new role happens to be with the same employer as my previous role?  I'd appreciate any suggestions!
