Dissolution Directions and Rules

A committee may end its filing obligation by filing a Notice of Dissolution when it has (1) paid or transferred all of its debts or obligations, (2) reduced its cash balance to zero, (3) if a candidate's committee, sold or transferred its campaign property, AND (4) filed a final report showing these transactions.

The Notice of Dissolution is to be filed within thirty (30) days of the committee's dissolution, with a copy of the final bank statement sent as soon as it is available.

Leftover funds (including, for candidates' committees, receipts from the sale of campaign property) must be distributed in a manner permitted by Iowa Code Chapter 68A.

If all of the statements listed above have been met, then you may click the Submit tab to continue.
