Government Code section 84101.5 imposes an annual fee on all active (not terminated) state and local campaign committees. The annual fee of $50 is due no later than January 15, 2022, if the committee will continue to exist in 2022, regardless of the level of activity.
If the fee is due and not paid by the January 15, 2022, deadline, the law imposes an additional $150 penalty, which will require the committee pay a total of $200 (the $50 annual fee plus the $150 penalty).
We are now accepting online payments for the 2022 Committee Annual Fee. To process your payment online, you will be required to enter your Committee ID Number. Please enter payment information for one Committee at a time, limited to $50 per transaction.
Payments that are not able to be matched to an outstanding liability, based on the information provided, will be refunded and the liability of the original $50 fee plus the $150 penalty if not corrected by January 15, may remain due.
Payments that are not able to be matched to an outstanding liability, based on the information provided above, will be refunded and the liability will remain due to CA SOS. To process a single payment for multiple outstanding invoices, please contact the CA SOS Political Reform Divison between 8:00am - 5:00pm, Monday-Friday, at 916-653-6224.
