Here is a 1999 pay-stub for Henry Eyring, first councilor in the LDS church first presidency. At the time he was one of the twelve apostles. Without an increase during the year, his annual income (just from the church) would have been around *$99,000.00.
… Pretty good dough …
Especially when you understand that the church touts “no-paid clergy.” They have constantly confessed the General Authorities get a “pittance” of a living expense.
Even by 1999 standards, $272.00 daily gross is hardly a meager amount.
*$181,653.12 adjusted for 2023 dollars
