    of some of your points, but I didn't realize secular employees could ever exclude housing from income. I guess I've never known anybody in that position, nor seen it in training.

    The whole thing is a bit of a mess, because there's no obvious solution that doesn't require treating somebody unfairly, compared to a similar somebody.

    The present decision, for example, allows the house to be tax-free, but only if the minister pays neither rent nor mortgage. If the same community charged even $1 rent, suddenly the whole FMV becomes taxable.
