Annual Statistical Return Deadline Fast Approaching

February 07, 2013

The deadline for annual statistical returns is next Friday, February 15. Adrian Pell, California-Nevada Annual Conference Statistician, thanks those churches that have already completed their returns. However, he reports there are quite a few remaining.


The "Statistician's Corner" webpage, found on the conference website, has been updated with some new frequently asked questions. Check these first, they may answer your question. Also, there are a series of short how-to videos available to show how to do everything from getting started, resetting your password, generating customized forms through to entering and submitting your statistics.


One item to note this week is that 2012 was the first year for direct billing of pensions for most churches. This means that for most churches with appointed clergy, there will be an entry on line 51 of table 2 which was not there last year.


There will be two more webinars next week, on Monday, February 11, at 7 p.m., and Tuesday, February 12, at 12 noon. Check for details on the "Statistician's Corner" webpage.
