Tithing settlement special cases

Those who contributed but did not attend tithing settlement

The bishop should complete a Tithing Settlement Statement for each donor who contributed but did not attend tithing settlement. The bishop should declare the tithing status and make sure the status is entered in MLS. Deliver or mail statements to those you have addresses for. Keep the rest for a year in case the donors ask for them.

Those who did not contribute

The bishop should declare a tithing status for every member of the ward whether they contributed tithing and donations or not, including all children. He should make sure the status of each member is entered in MLS.

Members who died

Print statements but do not record a tithing status unless the member died after tithing settlement. If the member's name appears on the Tithing Declaration Report, enter "Deceased" in the Notes column. Deliver or mail the statement to the donor's spouse or family.

Members serving full-time missions

Mark the tithing status as "Full" on the Tithing Settlement Statement. Print "On mission" in the Notes column on the Tithing Declaration Report. Give the statement to the missionary's parents or mail the statement to the missionary.

Members who contribute in kind or directly to Church headquarters

There will be no amounts on the Tithing Settlement Statement for these donors. Print "Donated in kind" or "Donated to headquarters" in the Notes column on the Tithing Declaration Report. The bishop should also record the member's tithing status declaration.

Donors who are not members of the ward

Do not complete the tithing status. Deliver or mail statements to those you have addresses for. Keep the rest for one year in case donors ask for them.

Students

If students have their membership records in student wards, encourage them to attend tithing settlement in the student wards. Tithing status must be declared by the bishop of the ward where their membership records are.

Donors with two residences

Those who spend part of the year at one residence and part of the year at another should attend tithing settlement in the ward where their membership record is located during tithing settlement.

Statements for organizations

Print statements but do not complete the tithing status. Deliver or mail statements to those you have addresses for. Keep the rest for one year in case organizations ask for them.
