FDS Deadline Extended
JCOPE Extends Filing Date for 2019 Financial Disclosure Statement Forms
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, JCOPE has found justifiable cause to grant all required financial disclosure statement ("FDS") filers an additional three months within which to submit their statement otherwise due by May 15th of this year. FDS filings must now be completed online or postmarked on or before Monday, August 17, 2020.
Procedures Updated, Audits Suspended
COVID-19 and Lobbying Filings
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, JCOPE has made changes in how it accepts hand delivery of lobbying filings. Paper filings can be submitted in the date-marked box in the outer lobby of our Albany office, but we are still not accepting hand delivery of checks. Any checks that would typically be submitted in person for a filing should be submitted by mail, or as an alternative, submit your filing through the online filing system and use a credit card to pay the submission fee.

We are also suspending the Lobbying Random Audit Program until further notice. Click the button below for more information.
