Party committees occasionally issue contributions that the recipient does not deposit. For example, the contribution is returned, uncashed, or lost. When this happens, the party committee reports a voided contribution to keep from deflating their cash on hand.
Reporting on Form 3X
Party committees report the voided contribution as a negative entry on Form 3X, Line 23.
Reporting with FECFile
To enter a voided contribution, go to the Summary Page tab, right click on “Line 23 Contributions to other federal candidates and political committees” and select ”new.”
