Copies of offering checks

Does a church need to make copies of all offering checks received? We record the name, amount and check number in QuickBooks. Wouldn't this be enough?



I do not know of any reason you would be required to keep copies of checks. As long as you are recording the necessary information for the contribution receipts, you are doing all the IRS requires.

I guess it would depend on you church policy; however, since quite a few churches depend on volunteer workers, I can’t see them adding unnecessary work for their staff.

Hope this helps,

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 =)
