Fines and Enforcement Policy
Personal Financial Disclosure Statements
The Political Reform Act of 1974 requires government officials and employees to
disclose certain personal financial holdings, gifts and payments. This is to assure the
public that government officials at any level will not make, participate in making or in any
way attempt to use his or her position to influence a governmental decision in which he
or she has a financial interest.
The Political Reform Act provides that all Statement of Economic Interests filed late may
be subject to fines. The following adopted policy is pursuant to Section 91013 of the
Political Reform Act:
If any person files an original Statement of Economic Interests after the deadline
imposed by the Political Reform Act, he or she shall, in addition to any other penalties or
remedies, be liable in the amount of ten dollars ($10) per day after the deadline up to
the maximum of one hundred dollars ($100). The filing officer need not enforce liability
of fines if on an impartial basis he or she determines the late filing was not willful and
the statement or report is filed before the waiver of liability period ends. No liability shall
be waived if a statement is not filed within 30 days after a specific written notice is
mailed to the filer.
Failure to pay any fines associated with the late filing of statement(s) will result in civil
action. The filing officer may obtain a judgment in small claims, municipal, or superior
court, depending on the jurisdictional amount.
Failure to file the required statement(s) will result in referrals to the Enforcement
Division of the Fair Political Practices Commission.
The Elections Department office will not investigate statement inaccuracies or
falsehoods. The parties pursuant to Section 91001 of the Political Reform Act, and any
persons residing within the jurisdiction, may pursue civil actions or injunctions,
depending on the nature of the violation.
- Candidates are required to file a Statement of Economic Interests Form 700 with our
office when filing their candidacy papers. Failure to do so will result in referrals to the
Fair Political Practices Commission.
- Designated officials of the County, and districts within the County, are required to file
the Form 700 every year, and are also required when necessary to file Assuming and
Leaving Office Statements. Our office is required to send annual notifications to the
representatives of the districts and departments for distribution to the officials.
- All statements are due no later than the published due date. Our office will send to
the non-filer a late notification. If the statement is still not filed, a second notification will
be sent stating specific written notice of the filing requirement. Failure to file after the
date stated in the second notice will result in fines from our office and referrals to the
Fair Political Practices Commission.
