- Candidate Committees - State law requires candidates who receive or expend, in any combination, $1100 or more to register as a candidate committee and account for all monies or things of value received and expended by them, their campaign committee or individuals on behalf of a person's candidacy for public office. For example, if a candidate receives $600 and spends $401, the total amount is over $1,000 and the candidate is required to register as a committee. Any combination of contributions or expenditures that remains below $1,000 does not trigger committee registration.
- Political Action Committees - Although candidates are required to register when the threshold is met, there is a two-part test to determine whether an entity is required to register as a political action committee. An entity must register as a political action committee if both of the following apply:
1. The entity is organized for the primary purpose of influencing the result of an election; and
2. The entity knowingly receives contributions or makes expenditures, in any combination, of at least $1,100 in connection with any election during a calendar year.
- This form is used when a committee no longer has any outstanding debt or obligations and has disposed of outstanding funds in accordance with A.R.S. 16-915.01.
