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, 2023, if the committee will continue to exist in 2023, regardless of the level of activity.
To process your payment online, you will be required to enter your Committee ID Number. Please enter payment information for only one Committee at a time. Payments that are not able to be matched to an outstanding liability, based on the information provided, will be refunded and the fee and/or penalty will remain due to California Secretary of State.
If the committee only owes the $50 annual fee, please pay a total amount of $50.
If the committee paid the $50 annual fee after the due date, please pay only the $150 penalty.
If the committee has not paid the $50 annual fee, please pay a total amount of $200.
If you have any questions regarding your payment amount due, or to process a single payment for multiple committees, please contact the California Secretary of State Political Reform Division between 8:00am - 5:00pm, Monday-Friday, at 916-653-6224.
