When a campaign solicits contributions through public communications, or on a campaign website, it must include a clear and conspicuous notice on the solicitation stating that it was authorized and paid for by the campaign.
Fundraiser invitation example
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.
