Political Financial Reporting

Political financial reporting is a complex and relatively new field in accounting. At Dowd, Whittaker & Associates, we’re proud to have gained extensive experience in this field, and to offer our proficiency to candidates for political office.

During any campaign, local, state, and federal regulations require periodic reporting of financial information. At the same time, campaigning alone is a full-time job for any political candidate. We can help them meet reporting requirements and stay compliant with the law throughout their campaigns, so they can focus on what’s most important: winning elections.

Our CPAs have unique knowledge from involvement with past campaigns, and we work diligently to stay abreast of all new developments in this area of accounting. For more information about our political financial services, please contact us.

Back in 2006, the Dowd Whittaker team helped me wage a great campaign that we fortunately won. Now it’s 2010, and we will go forward with another four-year term. The financial reporting that’s required is pretty complex, but with the help of John and his excellent staff, they’ve been able to keep me on the straight and narrow and give me sufficient time to meet all the requirements of a tough campaign. I never have to worry about deadlines— I always know that John Dowd and his team will meet those deadlines. They take care of the check collection, the reporting, assist with the thank you letters— everything a campaign needs. So I’m quite fortunate to have them, and I’ve recommended them to several other individuals who have chosen to run for office. — Joe Barbetta, Chair of the Sarasota County Commission
