Situation: Contributor A writes contribution (tithe) check to church for stated amount. On Memo Line Contributor A writes "to be credited to Contributor B".
How is the contribution to be recorded?
In the name of Contributor A or in the name of Contributor B?
My situation is an aunt making tithe contributions for a niece who is out of the country. I am presuming the niece is sending the aunt the money, not via a check, and requesting aunt to make tithe contribution to home church.
It had been the advice of several other church treasurers that the contribution had to be recorded under the name on the check. Appreciate your input.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.
Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
