Late Contributions/Expenditures Report Due By Noncandidate Committees @ State of Hawaii; Campaign Spending Commission
Apr 10 all-day

Noncandidate Committees

The next report due for Noncandidate Committees is the Late Contributions/Expenditures Report for reporting contributions made aggregating more than $500, reporting contributions received from any person aggregating more than $500, or reporting independent expenditures made aggregating more than $500 during the period of March 30 through April 9, 2019.  The report must be electronically filed on the Noncandidate Committee Filing System (“NCFS”) no later than 11:59 p.m. Hawaiian Standard Time on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.

Noncandidate committees making only independent expenditures (Super PACs) must also report additional information if a late contribution greater than $5,000 in the aggregate is received from an entity other than an individual, for-profit business entity, or labor union (see below*).

The Late Contributions/Expenditures Report is only required if late contributions are made or received, or late expenditures are made by the noncandidate committee. Late contributions/expenditures on this report will also be listed on the Final Election Period Report; however, the contribution/expenditure data is only entered once in the NCFS on the “Schedule A – Contributions Received,” “Schedule B1 – Contributions to Candidates,” or “Schedule B2 – Expenditures Made” screens.  The report can be previewed and printed in the NCFS by clicking “Preview/Print Report” and then “Late Contributions/Expenditures Report.”  Under the “Election Type” drop-down, select “Special” and then under the “Select Report” drop-down, select “Late Contributions/Expenditures Report.”  Click the “Preview” button to preview the report.  If you see late contributions or late expenditures that you entered for the March 30 through April 9, 2019 period then you are required to file the report.  To file the report, click “File Report” and then “Late Contributions/Expenditures Report.”  Under the “Election Type” drop-down, select “Special” and then under the “Select Report” drop-down, select “Late Contributions/Expenditures Report.”  Click the “File Report” button to file the report.

Chairpersons and treasurers of noncandidate committees are also reminded of their acknowledgment and certification on the “Noncandidate Committee Electronic Filing Form” that the information on all reports electronically filed online are true, complete, and accurate.  See, Hawaii Revised Statutes §§11-321(c)(2), 11- 331(b), and 11-340(a).

Please call the Commission at (808) 586-0285 if you have any questions.
