This is an example of the disclaimer notice requirements for a fundraiser invitation paid for by a party committee. If the communication is not authorized by a candidate, authorized committee or agent of either, the disclaimer must include who paid for the communication, the permanent street address, telephone number or website address of the person paying for the communication and that the communication was not authorized by any candidate.

Best efforts
Party committees and their treasurers must make “best efforts” to obtain, maintain and report the name, address, occupation and employer of each contributor who gives more than $200 in a calendar year. In order to show that the committee has made “best efforts,” solicitations must specifically request that information and inform contributors that the committee is required by law to use its best efforts to collect and report it. This request must be clear and conspicuous.

Statement of federal election purpose
Solicitations must inform potential contributors that their contributions will be used in connection with federal elections or that they are subject to the limits and prohibitions of the Federal Election Campaign Act.

IRS Notice Requirements
Section 6113 of the Internal Revenue Code requires political committees whose gross annual receipts normally exceed $100,000 to include a special notice on their solicitations to inform solicitees that contributions are not tax deductible.
