Do I minus the parsonage allowance of 39K from the Chaplain's W2 box 1; as a manual adjustment; and then add on PART II the designated 39K housing allowance?

W2 BOX 1,2,3,4,5,6 are all filled out.  

A letter from the employer "specifies that the parsonage includes the total compensation paid includes the housing allowance."

From my understanding... Am I to minus the 39k from box 1 manually? and then fill out Part II on DEF with 39K list of  D and E?

I would not select anything on F; since FICA tax were withheld according to the original W2?

OR... is the employer supposed to reissue a new CORRECTED W2? and minus the 39K from the w2?

Please advise.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
