Illinois Grants One-Time Reporting Amnesty
Effective January 1, 2011, political committees were required to file a quarterly report for the first time.
Due to a large number of non-filings by committees required to file this report, the Illinois Board of Elections is granting a one-time amnesty from civil penalty to any political committee that files their quarterly report on or before June 11, 2011.
Failure to report by June 11, 2011 will result in a formal complaint filed against the committee and civil penalties of up to $5,000.
