With all this talk about tithing, it reminded me of the fact that you can send your tithing directly to the Church without having to go through the bishopric. My wife and I have it set up with the rest of our bills on our bank’s website. Each month you just punch in the number and the bank sends the check.
The address is:
Corporation of the President
50 E. North Temple St.
15th Fl. Rm. 1521
Salt Lake City, UT, 84150
As someone who deals with tithing every week I love that this is an option both because it is less work for us and also because I prefer ignorance. The downside is that you have to contact the Church to get your report for taxes.
Note this is only for tithing and not for fast offerings or any other donations. Those still need to go through the ward.
