Per Minnesota Statutes 211A, a committee or a candidate who receives contributions or makes disbursements of more than $750 in a calendar year shall submit an initial report to the filing officer within 14 days after the candidate or committee receives or makes disbursements of more than $750 and shall continue to make the following reports:
- 10 days before the primary election
- 10 days before the general election
- 30 days after a general election
- by January 31 of each year following the year when the initial report was filed
A final report may be filed any time after the candidate, committee, or corporation has settled all debts and disposed of all assets in excess of $100 in aggregate.
Certification of filing is due 7 days after the general or special election. A Certification of Filing must be filed regardless if a candidate or committee raises or spends enough to file an initial report. It indicates to the filing officer that either all the required campaign reports have been filed or the candidate or committee did not raise or spend more than $750 in the calendar year.
