Disclosure Deadlines

2023 City Council Elections

All candidates running for city office are required to file disclosure statements with the CFB. You must disclose all contributions and expenditures in the disclosure statement due immediately after they are received/incurred using our web-based financial disclosure application, C-SMART. If contributions are not disclosed for the period in which they were received, they will not be eligible for matching funds.

Any candidate who fails to comply with the disclosure statement requirements may be subject to financial penalties. All official CFB notices including audit and enforcement notices will be sent electronically via the CFB Portal.

This disclosure schedule is for the 2023 City Council election cycle. If you are running in the 2025 citywide election cycle, please refer to the 2025 election cycle disclosure schedule.

After the election, candidates must continue to file periodic disclosure statements each January and July through the post-election audit until the campaign has satisfied all outstanding liabilities, appropriately disposed of all assets, and submitted an acceptable final disclosure statement to the CFB. Candidates must also file a personal financial disclosure report with the New York City Conflicts of Interest Board (COIB).

Note: Dates and deadlines are subject to change due to changes in the law, election schedules, Board Rules, or other circumstances. If changes do occur, updates will be posted on the CFB website and communicated to registered candidates via the CFB Portal and/or email. Be sure to check this page and the message center in the CFB Portal for updates.
