Cut-off Date for July Reports

July 6, 2015

Campaigns often ask if they may include their Independence Day fundraising receipts in their July FEC reports. Under Commission regulations, the date of receipt is used for reporting purposes, so campaigns should include only those contributions received by June 30 on their July 15 quarterly or July 20 monthly report, as appropriate. Contributions received on July 1 or afterwards should be reported on the committee's next report (i.e., the October 15 quarterly or August 20 monthly report), even if the check is dated or postmarked in June. For more information, see page 23 of the Campaign Guide for Congressional Candidates and this 2014 tip for treasurers. (As always, committees involved in a special election should follow the reporting schedule for that election.)
