Deceased Spouse Dontation Tithing Settlement

Postby clarkburbidge » Sun Dec 02, 2012 8:59 pm

What is the correct method to fix this?

We changed the name on the donation from the deceased to the living.

Shouldn't the deceased settlement still be available for the remainder of the year?

If the living spouse wants any or all donations originally recorded to the deceased spouse to be recorded for him/her, then this will work.

Yes. All member donors for the year, whether living or deceased will appear on the Tithing Declaration Report. The living spouse can make the declaration for the deceased spouse. However, if all the donations made by the deceased spouse have been changed to the living spouse then there will be no donations for the deceased spouse and then he/she will not appear on the report. Whether or not to print a member donor statement with no donations is optional.
