Financial Disclosure Form (Online)
A Financial Disclosure Form is required for all State and local candidates. The Financial Disclosure Form is to be filed with the controlling agency, the Maryland State Ethics Commission. The financial disclosure forms require the filer to identify real estate interests, equity interests, and other relationships such as employment, debts and gifts so that the public can be assured that the impartiality and independent judgment of those officials and employees will be maintained. A candidate may file a receipt as proof if the candidate previously filed a financial disclosure form for the calendar year required for the candidacy. For additional information about filing the financial disclosure, please contact the Maryland State Ethics Commission.
Upon completion of all requirements, a personalized Certificate of Candidacy will be generated for the candidate’s signature.
