Political Action Committees (PACs). There is a two-part test to determine whether an entity is required to register as a PAC. An entity must register if both of the following apply:
- The entity is organized for the primary purpose of influencing the result of an election; and
- The entity knowingly receives contributions or makes expenditures, in any combination, of at least $1,200 in connection with any election during a calendar year.
Example: A PAC receiving $700 and spending $500, or receiving $1,200 before making expenditures, is required to register as a committee within 10 days.
