Filing financial disclosure forms
You can prepare and file your forms online using the secure Financial Disclosure System. This system allows you to sign your forms with an electronic signature. Once you submit your statement(s) online, you do not need to submit a paper form.
If you prefer to submit your form(s) on paper, you can use one of two methods:
- Enter the data using the online system, then print the form(s).
- Download and complete the PDF versions of the form(s).
If you choose to file on paper, you must sign and file the completed paper form(s) at the Department of Records by 5 p.m. on May 1. The Department of Records is located at:
Philadelphia, PA 19107
