Repaying independent expenditure debt
In this example, the party committee made a $14,500 independent expenditure supporting candidate Louisa Adams in the Massachusetts Senate election in a previous reporting period. At the time it was incurred, the party committee reported this on Schedule D as a debt.
The party committee is now repaying the debt owed. The payment will be shown on Schedule E of Form 3X and on Schedule D.
