Personal Financial Statement


Requirements


New Deadline: The annual 2020 PFS report due April 30th has been moved to July 31, 2020, in response to the novel coronavirus COVID-19. You do not need to request an extension, nor do you need to call TEC to verify that your deadline has changed. TEC has already applied the extended deadline to all TEC filers whose PFS was due April 30, 2020.

Local filers: Check with your filing authority to verify if your annual PFS filing deadline has been moved to July 31, 2020. The TEC has requested all local filing authorities to extend the annual PFS deadline to July 31, 2020, in response to the novel coronavirus COVID-19. Details are on the TEC home page.

By state law, a PFS filed with the Texas Ethics Commission must be filed electronically. For instructions using the electronic filing application to generate your forms, see the above navigation tabs for Filing Reports▾TEC Filers▾Personal Financial Statement Reports.

However, under state law effective May 29, 2017, a PFS filed with the Texas Ethics Commission by an appointed officer may be filed on a paper Form PFS-TEC. To find the paper forms, see Texas Ethics Commission Filers at the left side of this page. Please read the Benefits of Electronic Filing first.

A PFS filed with Local Filing Authorities must be done using paper forms in the proper format required by the local filing authority. To find the paper forms, see Local Filers at the left side of this page.

A PFS report filed by a county judicial officer or a candidate for office as a county judicial officer (such as a County Court at Law Judge or Statutory County Court Judge), has the option to file on paper with the county clerk or to file electronically with the Texas Ethics Commission. A county judicial officer or candidate who files a financial statement with the commission shall file with the county clerk a document stating that the officer or candidate is filing the financial statement with the commission. The document must be filed by the deadline for filing the financial statement.
