FPPC Offers Guidance on Form 700 Deadline in Wake of COVID-19
The California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) encourages filers who have access to an electronic Form 700 filing system to take advantage of its use.
This comes in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming Form 700 Statement of Economic Interests filing deadline on April 1, 2020.
If electronic filing is not available, filers are strongly encouraged to submit forms by mail rather than in person.
Statements postmarked on or before the filing deadline are considered timely filed.
The FPPC’s advice telephone line is closed until further notice.
However, they continue to timely respond to requests for advice via email.
