Agudath Israel often gets requests for information about certain tax programs, and we have therefore prepared, with the assistance of tax lawyers, memos explaining these programs in detail.  One memo deals with parsonage payments, which are payments for housing costs to a rabbi or rebbe or others performing religious duties that are exempt from federal income taxes.  Another memo explains the Qualified Tuition Reduction Program, which enables a school to pay the tuition of its employee’s children such that that the tuition benefit is not subject to income tax.  Also included in this section are articles regarding other tax questions that we receive.
