Tithing payment for a deceased member

Postby jshelton » Sun Apr 10, 2016 1:08 pm

We have had a member recently pass. Her son is trying to finalize her tithing payments. She wasn't a member of our unit at time of passing. Can he pay that tithing with our unit or do we need to have him pay it in her ward where she passed from? Thanks.

Tithing can be paid in any unit. However, if the payment is made in your ward her son will need to get tax statements, if needed, from both your ward and her home ward. When the person is still alive they could get a consolidated statement online or sent from church headquarters. But the LDS Account of a deceased member is deleted and consolidated statements are only sent for those whose records are still in a ward. So neither of those options will be available.
