FEC Reporting

You can never hear the announcement below enough.  Those organizations that have forgotten to file or file late will find themselves in a difficult position with the Federal Election Commission.  The FEC requires that all Federal Campaign Committees and Political Action Committees file reports of all Receipts and Disbursements made in a certain period. The 1st Quarter 2014 reporting period ends on 3/31/2014. This report includes all receipts and disbursements for the period covering 1/1/2014-3/31/2014 with the final report due to the Federal Elections Commission on 4/15/2014.

Also, during an election year, Political Action Committees (PACs) that file quarterly may find it beneficial to file monthly. The benefit is monthly filers are not required to file pre-primary reports, including states holding special elections, to which the PAC has contributed funds.  The monthly report is due on the 20th of the following month.  For example, March 2014 activities would be due on April 20, 2014. Committees who would like to change their filing status must do so in writing to the Federal Election Commission prior to reporting under the newly requested monthly filing status. PACs are only allowed to change their reporting status once per calendar year.
