Fines

Any person who violates any of the reporting requirements or contribution or expenditure limitations, including both paper and electronic reporting requirements, set forth in state or local law, may be subject to fines, penalties and/or imprisonment. Fines vary depending on the violation but potentially are significant—and can be as much as three times the amount of money received or spent in excess of legal limits. In addition to any other penalties that may be imposed, late fees for filing any copy of a statement or report filed after the deadline are $10 per day for paper filings, limited to the amount of activity during the reporting period or $100, whichever is greater. In addition, there is a $25 per day fee for electronic statements or reports filed after the deadline, limited to the amount of activity during the reporting period or $250, whichever is greater.
