How to Add a Bundled Receipt
Form 3L is filed by authorized committees of federal candidates, political party committees and Leadership PACs (collectively “reporting committees”) that receive certain bundled contributions from lobbyists/registrants and lobbyist/registrant PACs. If you are not sure if your committee needs to file this report, please contact your FEC analyst. This help file will take you through adding a receipt to show up on the Form 3L.
The form 3L is a report showing lobbyists/registrants and lobbyist/registrant PACs. This is not a report of the individual contributions that make up the entire bundled receipt.
To clarify -- Joe Lobbyist fundraises $22,000 for our campaign. The Form 3 and Form 3x will show the individual contributions that made up that $22,000. However, the Form 3L simply attributes that amount of fundraising to Joe Lobbyist so only his name and the amount he raised for the campaign will show on the report.
For the purposes of this help file, we will use Joe Lobbyist as an example.
To add a bundled receipt:
We have now added a bundled receipt!
We also recommend adding a separate bank account for bundled receipts. This will prevent them from showing inadvertently on reports or lists of total transactions that you may pull at a later date.
Remember that this is for your lobbyist only. You should still put in your earmarked contributions on the individual contributor records in order for those transactions to show up on the Form 3/Form 3X.
