How should the checking account balance brought forward from the end of the previous quarter be recorded in the following quarter report?
At our quarterly business meeting today, I noticed that the checking account balance brought forward from the end of the previous quarter was listed under Income, and it was also counted with donations, offerings, etc., toward the amount of Total Income of the reported quarter.
It's been done this way, I've been seeing the reports for about 5 years, and only today noticed this oddity.
Is this the proper way to account these funds?

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 =)
