Financial Reporting

Wow! The financial reporting requirements for running for office are pretty daunting. I have some background reading law, and regulations, but the number and variety of reporting categories, and the paperwork for setting up officers (especially a Treasurer), and a campaign organization take a long time. Eight separate forms so far, and I'm not finished.

And this is just so you can start to run for office! Just so you can get permission from the state either to spend money, or receive contributions.

Check out this tome. They did publish this guide, and it has pretty good instructions, but it doesn't tell you enough about the web sites to go to. Once you figure it out, I have to admit the state has done a pretty thorough job of documentation.

But there are some pretty threatening claims there. And, as I have argued elsewhere, the problem is "controlling legal authority."
