But that information was going to be used to decide "whether to leave her records in our ward or do something else with them". Based on the Handbook, I fail to see how or why that should play a role in that decision.

I didn't answer the question, but I did address the issue that was driving it.

It's 34.4.1.3, and before it says that members can pay tithing annually if they wish to do so, it says "Leaders encourage members to pay tithing as they receive their income". Presumably the OP's bishop qualifies as one of those leaders.

The old wiki on this site seems to have at least contemplated something along the lines suggested in the first post of this thread. That wiki says: "An Income and Expense Report can be run using Details by Sub-Category and choosing Fast Offering as the category. This will show all donations by donor and date. Sorting by Donor will at least group the donations by donor, although any summing of totals per donor would have to be done manually."

Using the unit finance reports would also only show online or paper donations made through a unit. It's also possible to make payments directly to church HQ that aren't visible to the unit- this can be done for reasons of privacy, international payments, in-kind donations, or whatever. In those cases, HQ sends a separate yearly donation statement to the member (because the unit-visible values would be incomplete).
