If an SSF files quarterly in election years, it will automatically switch to semi-annual reporting in non-election years.
If an SSF files monthly in election years, it will keep filing monthly in non-election years.
If an SSF wants to switch filing frequency from monthly to quarterly (or vice versa), it can do this up to one time a calendar year, if the treasurer notifies the FEC first:
- In writing, for paper filers
- Electronically, for electronic filers
Other filing requirements may also apply if an SSF is active in a special election.
