One Check, Multiple Tithing Slips

#1Postby bstensgard-p40 » Sun Dec 20, 2009 9:58 pm

Hello,

There is a family in our ward that typically writes one check for 2 - 4 tithing slips, all made out for different members of the family. They would like to keep their tithing separate, however I can't figure out how to split a check up over multiple donors in MLS. We have been adding up all of the slips and making one deposit under the father's name. Is there something I am missing? If I list the check on each family members donation, won't it show up multiple times on the Bank's printout and cause issues at the bank. I appreciate your help!:)

on the donations screen select "new slip" this allows you to select multiple donors
There are 11 types of people. Those who understand Gray Code and those that don't.

Ok. So your method will allow me to have multiple donor slips use the same check?

Example:
20 December 2009
John Doe - Tithing slip with $100 tithing
Jane Doe - Tithing slip with $125 tithing
Jack Doe - Tithing slip with $2 tithing

Check #123 for $227 is submitted to cover all 3 donor slips.

The family would like to keep their tithing separate. I don't know how to split the check up over the three tithing slips, without having three check #123s (at the three different amounts shown above) show up in the check list at the end of the batch...

Yes, what kd7mha said will accomplish exactly what you need. Make sure you choose "New Slip" and not the usual "New Donation". What will happen with your example is you'll end up with three slips on the left side, each one represented by a separate tab (John, Jane, Jack), and then on the right side you can enter checks, notes, and coin as usual -- in this case, one check #123 for $227.

There will be just one check #123 for $227 on the Deposit Report, and each one of the 3 donors will have a separate donation in the appropriate categories.

Thank you for the screen shot! In my head I was thinking he was talking about the "New Donation" button. Thank you both!

I also thank you for that explanation.
We have always entered three separate donations with cheques 23a, 23b, 23c so it all adds to cheque 23's total so the bank always balanced and never had a problem but I see your idea is the way to do it properly - no one had ever explained it before.
