The need to confess

What עבירה was done that there is a need for וידוי מעשרות?

                           THE FOUR ANSWERS

3 of the 4 answers are on the same  page of the יכין ובועז Mishnayos
(מעשר שני פ"ה משנה י')

1) Because our forefathers sinned we must remove the מעשרות from the house 
instead of giving it to the בכורות of our own family.

2)  For withholding the מעשרות and not distributing them immediately.

3) וידוי can be said for said even for good deeds and not only for bad deeds.

4) The  קדושת לוי writes, one should always keep remembering the עבירות of 
the past and one should forget the מצוות of the past.

That's the Pshat of אתה זוכר כל הנשכחות, Hashem remembers the forgotten מצוות
or ח"ו the forgotten עבירות (if one doesn't remember them himself)

The Satmar Rebbe R. Yoilish zt"l explained with this קדושת לוי the reason 
for the need for  וידוי מעשרות, since he says "לא עברתי ממצותיך ולא שכחתי"

1)  תוס' יו"ט - ספורנו   2)  משנה ראשונה  3)  תוס' אנשי שם
