The Texas Ethics Commission recognizes that filers affected by Hurricane Harvey may be unable to meet the upcoming MPAC filing deadline on September 5, 2017, and Lobby filing deadline on September 11, 2017 (deadline extended because of weekend). Ethics Commission rules allow for the waiver of any penalty associated with a late filing due to a verifiable weather event. If you think you are eligible for a waiver, please submit an affidavit of defense describing the circumstances surrounding your late filing.

A blank affidavit can be found here. You can submit the completed affidavit by mail to P.O. Box 12070, Austin, Texas 78711-2070, or by fax to 512-463-8808.

Please note, the Commission cannot consider an affidavit of defense until after your report has been filed. | Texas Homeland Security | Statewide Search | Site Policies
