ON JULY 30TH, every federally registered lobbyist must file the semi-annual LD-203 report, which is ample reason to sign up for next week’s LD-203 Filing Boot Camp. The webinar will be led by Foley & Lardner’s Cleta Mitchell, who in addition to training lobbyists is known for her crusades against the IRS. Attendees earn a Certificate of Training upon completing the course, along with a deep knowledge of disclosure law and gift rules ready to be unleashed at the next cocktail party.
July 30 – LD-203
The semi-annual report is required of all lobbyists to certify ethics compliance and disclosure. “Form LD-203 is required to be filed semiannually by July 30th and January 30th (or next business day should either of those days fall on a weekend or holiday) covering the first and second calendar halves of the year. Registrants and active lobbyists (who are not terminated for all clients) must file separate reports which detail FECA contributions, honorary contributions, presidential library contributions, and payments for event costs.” July 30th is a Tuesday.
