Donations

Postby kmalone-p40 » Sun Dec 07, 2008 7:47 pm

I have a member who paid their tithing to a wrong ward.

The check was made out to the correct ward but member sent it to another ward (many miles from home ward) and now wants to have the check accounted for in her home ward.

How would I go about this.

Since all tithing goes to Church Headquarters, there is no need to try to correct this. Have the donor provide the "wrong" ward with her current address and they will mail the 2008 Tax Statement to her.

If the other ward deposited the tithing, it cannot be changed. The member will need to do as gpetersen suggests and contact that ward for an accounting and/or tax statement.
