Taking in receipts as an SSF

Receipts are anything of value (money, goods, services or property) received by a political committee. Receipts include both contributions and other forms of support.

Once the treasurer (or authorized agent) receives a receipt, he or she must deposit it within 10 days. Contributions may be returned to the contributor within 10 days without being deposited.

These pages explain the basic laws that apply to receipts by political committees, including SSFs. SSFs also have special rules that apply when raising contributions, however, that vary from other types of federal political committees.
