Campaign Finance Reporting Schedule
2014-2015 Candidates, Parties, PAC Schedule
The next report due from committees that are required to file on the quarterly schedule is the 2014 Fourth Quarter. All candidates who are active from previous election cycles but are not on the ballot in 2014 (or are not supporting candidates on a ballot in 2014) are on the semi-annual reporting schedule, and shall file the 2014 Year End Semi-Annual Report instead of quarterly reports.
In short, if you are on the quarterly schedule, you do not file semi-annually. If you are on the semi-annual schedule, you do not file quarterly. Your status as a quarterly or semi-annual filer is determined by GS 163-278.9. Notices of reports that are due are sent by the elections board to committee treasurers. Please note that if the address of your committee’s treasurer is not current, your committee may not receive these notifications.
The Treasurer is responsible for ensuring evidence of the mailing date for reports. Metered postage does not prove timely filing because a meter may be set to any date. A postmark is evidence of timely mailing, but you must request the post office to place a legible postmark on your envelope; the process is no longer automatic. Many of the letters we receive bear no postmark or illegible postmarks. Treasurers are well advised to send reports through registered or certified mail.
