This is an example of the disclaimer notices required for a fundraiser invitation paid for by a candidate committee. A disclaimer notice must contain the full name of the individual, group or political committee that paid for the communication, along with any abbreviated name it uses to identify itself.

When making solicitations, 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 an election cycle. 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.

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.
