Saints of JKP,
Many of you have heard about a ruling from a federal district judge in Wisconsin which declares Minister’s housing allowance to be unconstitutional. Many of you probably recall that this same judge made the same ruling two years ago. It was later overturned by a higher court. There are still steps to unfold concerning this ruling. What is helpful for you to know right now:
-There is no need to be concerned about your taxes and housing allowance for 2017.
-A team of lawyers from the PCUSA and several other denominations are monitoring and addressing the situation in an effort to preserve this benefit to their clergy.
-This will likely require some time to fully adjudicate.
-We will continue to pass information as it becomes available.
While no one knows with certainty what the future holds we urge everyone to remain calm with the assurance that professionals are working hard on behalf of those who have made their financial plans according to the current formula of compensation.
John Knox Presbytery is pleased to welcome Karen Deniger as our new Presbytery Administrator! Karen comes to us with a wealth of experience and skill. She will be replacing Judy who will be retiring at the end of October. Both will be at our November Presbytery meeting. Welcome aboard Karen!
