Schedule 1(D) – Insert Expenditure

On the “Item Details” screen, select the Expense Type (Campaign Expense or Loan Repayment) from the drop down list.

If you selected “Campaign Expense,” enter the payment date, and check number. Enter the amount attributable to your campaign in the “Pro-Rata Amount This Reporting Entity” box. Next, complete the “Pro-Rata Amount Others” box by entering the amount or portion of the disbursement attributable to another candidate or committee. The “Full Amount” of the disbursement will automatically appear in the “Full Amount” box. The “Pro-Rata Amount This Reporting Entity” and the “Pro-Rata Amount Others” will always equal the “Full Amount” box.

Click the right arrow button or Tab to the “Expenditure Detail” screen and enter the Payee information. If an expenditure has been made to the same Payee previously, select their name from the “Payee Name” drop down list. The address information will be automatically populated.
