February 6, 2023 Notice: Annual Form 700 Filing Reminder



Subject: Action Required – Your Annual Form 700 Filing is Due by April 3, 2023

Dear Filer,

This notification is to inform you that Your Annual Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) is due no later than April 3, 2023

The Political Reform Act requires certain officials, employees, and consultants who serve in positions designated in an agency’s conflict-of-interest code to disclose financial interests as specified by their position’s disclosure category on a form called a Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700).

The Form 700 provides necessary information to the public about an official’s personal financial interests to ensure that officials are making decisions in the best interest of the public and not enhancing their own personal finances. It serves as a reminder to the public official of potential conflicts of interest so the official can abstain from making or participating in governmental decisions that are deemed conflicts of interest.

Please remember that except for deadlines that fall on a Saturday, Sunday or an official state holiday, there is no provision in the law for an extension of a filing deadline. Late statements are subject to a $10 per day late fine. Furthermore, persons who fail to file their Form 700 timely may also be referred to the Ethics Commission’s Enforcement Division, which may impose a penalty of up to $5,000 per violation.

How To File

Effective January 1, 2022, all persons occupying positions designated in the City’s Conflict of Interest Code are required to file their Form 700 statements in electronic format using the Ethics Commission‘s NetFile e-filing system.
