Independent/Political (PAC) Committee Forms and Instructions

These forms are now updateable.  Please fill in the necessary fields as needed and Print.  These forms are used for State level (January, April, July, October Quarterlies, Dissolution and amended campaign statements) and local PACs (Pre/Post Election), Dissolution and amended campaign statements on paper.

As soon as a "person" or group receives or spends $500.00 or more in a calendar year the MCFA requires the "person" or group to form and register a committee.  Once the $500.00 threshold has been met the PAC has 10 calendar days to form and register a Statement or Organization with the appropriate filing official.  The statement of organization form is also to keep up-to-date contact information, and request a Reporting Waiver if the committee does not expect to spend or receive more than $1,000 (See Appendix C for requirements of obtaining a reporting waiver).

 

** Electronic Filing threshold lowered to $5,000 from $20,000 effective for all 2014 filings.
