I know someone will post here soon and tell me that they got help from the Church and there was no form filled out by the Bishop. Let me assure you...there is a form and yes....some Bishops will not use it.

Is your friend collecting unemployment benefits, or working "on the side" and getting paid in cash? . .but your friend should talk more at length with his bishop about it. There are probably more factors than we are aware of, such as the possibility that the friend has turned down opportunities for work, or other unknowns.
To be honest, I don't know all the particulars, but I thought I would ask. I think you're right in saying that there are probably more factors at play. Thanks everybody for the info!

I received a message from a friend who said that he has been out of work for 5 months. The Church has been providing assistance during that time, but apparently the bishop has decided to cut back on the assistance. The reason that was given to my friend was that he had not been paying tithing for the previous 4 months. My question then is are you supposed to tithe on assistance received from the Church?
No, not on the church assistance but tithe should be paid on the unemployment pay. I was once out of work for more than a year, never asked for assistance because I had money in the bank (albeit borrowed money) to pay my bills, but I paid my tithe on the state's unemployment checks.
