Statement of Disposal of Excess Funds and Excess Aggregate Contributions - Form 31-Z
This form is used ONLY by the campaign committees of statewide, general assembly and state board of education candidates who must dispose of excess funds or excess aggregate contributions.
This form is used to list the methods by which excess funds and excess aggregate contributions were disposed. The excess amount disposed of may be in the form of campaign funds or campaign assets.
The full name and address of the individual or entity to which the funds or assets are given must be entered into the appropriate blocks.
Date blocks should be completed with six digits. For example, May 20, 2001, would appear as 05 20 01.
If the excess given was monetary, enter the actual dollar amount in the Value block. When disposing of campaign assets, the Value block should reflect the fair market value of the asset.
A description of the funds or asset(s) should be briefly but completely stated in the Describe Funds or Asset Given block. For example: Check #1234 - campaign funds or (100) 32 cent U.S. Postal stamps.
The Code block should reflect one of the allowable codes. A “1” should appear if the excess is given to the Ohio Elections Commission Fund. A “2” should appear if the excess is refunded to a contributor (up to, but not exceeding, the total contributed by that contributor). A “3” should appear if the excess is given to a 501(c) corporation.
The total of all the Statement of Disposal of Excess Funds and Excess Aggregate Contributions should appear on line 10 of the Permissive Funds Report and Declaration of Filing-Day Finances, Form 31-W.
