Late Contributions Report Due By CandidatesPosted in
The Late Contributions Report is for reporting contributions from any person that aggregates more than $500 that are received by a candidate or candidate committee within the period of July 25 through August 4, 2020. The report must be electronically filed on the Candidate Filing System (“CFS”) no later than 11:59 p.m. Hawaiian Standard Time on Wednesday, August 5, 2020.
The Late Contributions Report is only required if late contributions are received by the candidate or candidate committee. Late contributions on this report will also be reported on the Final Primary Report; however, the contribution data is only entered once in the CFS on the “Schedule A – Contributions” screen. The report can be previewed and printed in the CFS by clicking “Preview/Print Report” and then “Special Report.” Under the “Election Type” drop-down, select “Primary” and then under the “Select Report” drop-down, select “Late Contributions Report.” Click the “Preview” button to preview the report. If you see late contributions that you entered for the July 25 through August 4, 2020 period then you are required to file the report. To file the report, click “File Report” and then “Special Report.” Under the “Election Type” drop-down, select “Primary” and then under the “Select Report” drop-down, select “Late Contributions Report.” Click the “File Report” button to file the report.
Candidates and treasurers of candidate committees are also reminded of their acknowledgment and certification on the “Candidate 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)(1), 11- 331(a), and 11-340(a).
