I received a contribution in excess of my contribution limit. Now what?

Posted in

An excess contribution is any contribution over the legal limit. If an excess contribution is returned within 7 days of receipt, the excess contribution is not required to be reported.  If you miss the 7 day return, the excess contribution must be reported on the applicable disclosure report and returned to the original contributor within 30 days of receipt of the excess contribution.  Any excess contribution not returned to the original contributor within 30 days shall escheat to the Hawaii Election Campaign Fund.  Call the Commission at (808) 586-0285 to report the excess contribution.
