How to report

Contributions and transfers from federal candidate committees

When a party committee receives a contribution or a transfer from a federal candidate committee, the party committee will report the receipt.

Reporting on Form 3X

Contributions and transfers from federal candidate committees are disclosed on Line 11(c) of Schedule A regardless of the amount of the receipt. To itemize a receipt, the committee discloses:

  • Name of the federal candidate committee
  • Mailing address
  • Date of receipt
  • Amount of receipt
  • Aggregate calendar-year-to-date total of all receipts from the source

The entry should specify the nature of the transaction such as “transfer,” “transfer of excess funds” or “contribution.”
