The Late Contributions/Late Expenditures Report is 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 within the period of July 28 through August 7, 2018.  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, August 8, 2018.

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*).  Furthermore, any expenditure that is contracted or paid for and that is to be rendered during the last three days prior to an election (November 5 through November 7, 2016) shall be included in the report.

The Late Contributions/Late Expenditures Report is only required if late contributions are made or received, or late expenditures are made by the noncandidate committee. Late contributions and late expenditures on this report will also be reported on the Final Election Period Report; however, the contribution and 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 “General” 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 October 25 through November 4, 2016 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 “General” 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.
