Article ID: 265
Last updated: 17 Dec, 2011

Go to Reporting > Compliance Reports and choose FEC Form 99 to file the free-form text message to the FEC, the Form 99.

Please uncheck everything on the Form3 Schedules Tab when filing a Form 99. When you click on the Form 99
button, a text box will appear for you to type in your message. When you are finished with your message, press OK. The program will then prompt you for a file name, with the default being “FEC_FORM_99”. DO NOT CHANGE THIS FILE NAME. Simply press Save. If it asks you to overwrite the existing file, say yes. The file FEC_FORM_99 simply serves as a FEC Form 3placeholder that will then be incorporated into your actual report. After this, the filing is the same as any other FEC filing.

Committees – Select the filing committee you would like to run the FEC Form 3 report for. Additionally, you will need to select the bank accounts whose transactions you would like to disclose in the report.
