Actually the online training states the process begins one month before tithing settlement. There is no requirement to begin on November 15th. Rather that date is the earliest tithing settlement may begin. But if the bishop does want to begin on November 15th then yes, a good date to distribute Tithing and Other Offerings Statements is October 15th. But if it begins on December 1st than a good date to begin distributing is November 1st.
The online training provides guidelines to help the bishop, his counselors, the executive secretary, and the clerks plan the process. The only requirements regarding dates is that tithing settlement should not begin before November 15th and that it be completed by December 31st.
