What's New

Gifts and Travel Payments

The Commission is continually updating regulations and rules that pertain to gifts and travel payments. For the most current information, including new travel rules effective January, 2014, refer to the fact sheets and FAQs on our website. The rules contained in this publication were those in effect through December 31, 2013 and apply to gifts and travel payments received during 2013.

New Gift Tracking Mobile Application

FPPC has created and launched a new gift tracking app for mobile devices. The app helps filers track gifts they receive in a calendar year and provides a quick and easy way to upload the information to the Form 700. The data is not collected electronically, it is fully stored on the phone. This app is currently available for Android Phone running version 4.0 or higher, with an iOS version coming in the near future.
