Political Organization Filing and Disclosure
Welcome to the Political Organization Filing and Disclosure Website! On this site, you can electronically file Form 8871, Political Organization Notice of Section 527 Status, and Form 8872, Political Organization Report of Contributions and Expenditures . Additionally, you can search for and view copies of all submitted Forms 8871 and Forms 8872 (both paper and electronic filings).
Note: The Form 8872 online filing program does not allow organizations to enter foreign addresses for contributions and expenditures. As a temporary measure, organizations may enter the foreign address as follows:
Enter in Address Line 1: the street address
Enter in Address Line 2: the city, state/province and postal code
Enter in City: the country
Enter in State: DC
Enter in Zip Code: 20000
When searching the database, the state/zip code combination of "DC" and "20000" will indicate that the address is a foreign address.
See Contents of Initial Notice for a list of information you need to file Form 8871. If you are filing an initial notice, you should gather this information before you start the filing process.
NOTE: The schemas for XML files that may be uploaded to electronically file Form 8871 and Form 8872 have been updated. Please see the XML schema page for more information and to download the new schemas.
