Statement of Economic Interests
Beginning January 1, 1994, persons required to file a Statement of Economic Interests include all elected and appointed officials and local government employees who have authority to authorize the expenditure of public funds, execute contracts, and issue licenses and permits. For additional information on who has to file, please see Excerpt from Article 4A-101 of the Illinois Governmental Ethics Act.
The Illinois Attorney General has ruled that lists of required filers must be certified by the local unit of government to the County Clerk for the county where the local unit of government's principal office is located. Local units of government may submit the names of required filers using Internet submission.
Required filers may submit Statement of Economic Interests forms online using the secured password provided by the County Clerk. After the first year of filing online, when the filer has supplied an email address, all future notices of filing requirements will be sent via email and are deemed notice sent by first class mail. A filer who has supplied an email address is responsible to notify the County Clerk of a new email address or if he or she no longer wishes to receive notices by email.
A new Statement of Economic Interests Form is required beginning Jan 1, 2022. Any Statement filed from that date must use the new form.
All candidates seeking public office must file a current Statement of Economic Interests in the same year as they file candidate's petitions. The Statement of Economic Interests must be filed with the County Clerk and a printed receipt attached to such filings. Candidates seeking a duplicate receipt for a previously filed Statement of Economic Interests for the same calendar year and same unit of government may print the online receipt as a duplicate.
NOTE: A receipt is not required to accompany nomination papers when the Statement of Economic Interests is already on file with the same officer who accepts the nomination papers.
This form is only for Candidates who are required to file a Statement as part of their nomination papers.
All filings submitted on paper beginning 2012 and later, as well as paper filings prior to 2012, are available for public viewing in the office of the Lake County Clerk at 18 North County Street, Room 101, Waukegan, IL. For additional information, please contact 847-377-2404.
