Section 10: Financial Disclosure Statements

What is a Financial Disclosure Statement?
(DC Official Code § 1-1106.02)

A Financial Disclosure Statement is the annual listing of financial transactions for the prior calendar year, unless the form is submitted as an amendment. The form addresses the following:

  • Business Transactions: This consists of business entities transacting any business with the District of Columbia in which the public official (or spouse for jointly titled property) has a beneficial interest valued in excess of $1,000.00, or serves as an officer, director, partner, employee, contractor, consultant or in any other capacity. Business entities include sole proprietorships, partnerships and corporations.
  • Business Interest: Any business interest held by the public official (or spouse for jointly held property) in business entities transacting any business with the District of Columbia Government consisting of corporate stock, registered and traded on a national exchange, is listed only if the total value exceeds $5,000.00.
  • Liabilities: Each outstanding liability borrowed by the public official (or spouse if a joint liability) exceeding $1,000.00 which is not a loan from a federal or state insured or regulated financial institution, immediate family member, or revolving credit or installment account.
  • Real Property: All real property located in the District of Columbia (other than the personal residence actually occupied by the public official or spouse) that the public official or spouse (where jointly titled) holds an interest that has a fair market value in excess of $5,000.00.
  • Licenses: Each professional or occupational license issued by the District of Columbia Government.
