Financial Disclosures

The Florida Commission on Ethics prepares a list of persons holding positions who are required to file an annual financial disclosure for the previous calendar year. The Ethics Commission obtains the name and address of each individual from coordinators who have been designated from each state and local government agency.

As a position holder, you may be required to file a Form 1, Statement of Financial Interests or Form 6, Full and Public Financial Disclosure. A Form 1F or Form 6F is required to be filed by officers after leaving office. Electronic forms are now completed through the Commission on Ethics and can be found at the Financial Disclosure Forms page.

For questions regarding what information to disclose on your financial form or to determine if you are required to file, please review the detailed instructions with the form or contact the Florida Commission on Ethics at (850) 488-7864.

Financial disclosures are due July 1 of each year for the preceding calendar year. A grace period is in effect until September 1. If the disclosure is not filed or postmarked by September 1, automatic daily fines will begin to accrue, and will continue to build until the disclosure is filed, or the fine reaches the maximum amount. For more information, please contact the Florida Commission on Ethics.

Candidates for elected office are also required to file financial disclosures. Forms are now completed using the online filing system. A copy of the online form is required to be submitted during the candidate qualifying period. Please refer to the Become a Candidate page for more information.
