Yes. All committees must file reports whether or not they have had any financial activity.
Caucus campaign committees file 30-day post-election finance statements for both the primary and general elections.
No. Committees affiliated by the structure of their by-laws, registration or membership are considered one committee for the purposes of applying the maximum contribution limit. Because caucus campaign committees and executive committees are not affiliated, they are not subject to a shared contribution limit; however, a caucus campaign committee cannot transfer funds to another caucus campaign committee or to party executive committees.
The maximum contribution limit to a caucus campaign committee is $5,000 per calendar year (not per election). If a contributor makes a single $5,000 contribution to a particular caucus campaign committee on January 1, 20XX, that contributor cannot make any other contributions to that particular caucus campaign committee until the next calendar year. However, the contributor may contribute $5,000 to other caucus campaign committees.
No. Those organizations are primarily social in nature. However, funds may be expended for advertising with the organization so long as the expenditure furthers a candidacy.
No.  Under Kentucky’s campaign finance law, “corporation” means any corporation, company, partnership, joint stock company, or association.  Since corporations are prohibited from making contributions directly to candidates, slates of candidates, or committees, a partnership may not contribute money directly to a caucus campaign committee.  However, non-corporate partners may contribute a maximum of $5,000 per calendar year individually from funds derived from the partnership. If a partnership check is issued, information from the partnership must be obtained listing the percentage of the contribution attributable to each partner.
No. Limited liability companies (LLCs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs) are considered “corporations” under Kentucky’s campaign finance law, and corporations are prohibited from making contributions directly to candidates, slates of candidates, or committees.
This question should be referred to the Kentucky Legislative Ethics Commission. The commission enforces the code of Legislative Ethics and regulates conduct by legislators, lobbyists and the employers of lobbyists.  Go to for additional information.
