Form 700 Filing Deadlines

2018 Annual Form 700, and Ethics and Sunshine Training Declaration Form due Monday, April 2 2018. Learn More.

City officers and designated employees must file Form 700 (Statement of Economic Interest) to disclose their reportable financial interests when assuming office, annually thereafter, and when leaving office, covering three distinct reporting periods. The following sections provide details regarding the filing deadlines.

Reporting Period Covered Filing Due Date
Assuming Office 12 months prior to the date you assumed office through your start date Within 30 days of the date you were sworn in or authorized to serve in your position
Annual January 1st – December 31st of the previous calendar year April 1st every year
Leaving Office Period following your last Form 700 filing, up to your last day in this position No later than 30 days after leaving your office or position

Exceptions for annual filing: If you assumed office between October 1 and March 31, and filed an assuming office Form 700 then you do not need to file an annual Form 700 the following year and must file the year after.

What happens if you don’t file on time? There is no provision in the state law to extend the Form 700 filing deadlines. Statements filed late are subject to a late fee of $10 per day per position up to a maximum of $100 for each day the statement is late. Visit the late filing and enforcement page to learn more.

What are other related filing deadlines? City officers who file Form 700 with the Ethics Commission are also required to complete Ethics and Sunshine Ordinance Training. Visit the Ethics and Sunshine Training page to learn about those requirements.
