LATE FILINGS = LATE FEES
Remember if your campaign finance reports are not filed by the deadlines listed below you must pay the late filing fee before the report can be accepted by the Secretary of State or by any other filing office where your committee is registered.
The late filing fee starts out at $10 for each calendar day the report is late (that includes weekends and holidays) from the date the report is due until the 15th day after you received notice that you did not file on time. Then the fine increases to $25 a day until it reaches a maximum of $1000.
The Secretary of State cannot, by law, accept a late report without full payment of the late fee. Neither can any other filing office.
