Campaign Financial Services offers a wide range of financial services. We recognize
that every campaign operation is different, and our team is dedicated to establishing
the right financial arrangement for you. These general services will also be tailored
to the unique needs of political action committees.
FEC Report Preparation and Submissions
CFS will prepare and submit all reports to the Federal Election Commission including
Quarterly or Monthly Reports, Pre-Primary, 48 Hour Notices, Pre-General, Post-General,
Statement of Organization and Statement of Candidacy filings.
CFS will manage all accounting functions. We prepare professionally generated checks
for all vendors and political contributions, including candidate enclosure letters.
We have on-site resources to process the payroll for an entire campaign staff.
Federal and State Taxes
CFS contracts with a Certified Public Accountant to offer federal and state tax
services, including all filings and deposits.
CFS maintains all donor correspondence, including upholding the FEC’s “best efforts”
Thank You Letters
CFS will create and send professionally prepared thank you letters, signed by the
candidate or Member.
Fast Turn Around
Since we are headquartered on Capitol Hill, we will happily generate and deliver
checks with same day delivery for DC fundraisers and other functions.
We offer an abundance of resources to our candidates, Members, and their staff for
campaign related activity. Telephone calls and facsimiles can be taken from our
Carriage House. We invite all of our clients to use our facilities for activity
off of federal grounds.
We provide regular reports updating the status of cash on hand, as well as receipts
and disbursements on a weekly and/or monthly basis. We will also create a year end
report with a full evaluation of the campaign’s fiscal progress, by fundraising
event, if requested.
CFS serves as a liaison before the FEC and regulatory community to provide the campaign
with answers to compliance inquiries.
Outside FEC Expert
As an option, we can run the campaign’s major FEC reports by an outside FEC expert
for an additional fee.
For new clients who might find themselves in need of auditing services to resolve
previous accounting discrepancies, we provide independent auditing services for
campaigns, party committees, and PACs. The fee structure for audits is hourly with
a minimum guarantee based on an estimate of the volume.
CFS works on a retainer basis.
