Political contributions from prohibited sources

Under federal law, political contributions from prohibited sources must be disgorged by either refunding the contribution to the contributor or sending it to the U.S. Treasury within 30 days of the date the contribution is discovered. The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) has released a new address for disgorged contributions:

Department of the Treasury
Bureau of the Fiscal Service
P.O. Box 1328
Parkersburg, WV 26106-1328
ATTN: Agency Cash Branch, Avery 3G

According to FEC guidance, a letter should accompany the disgorged contribution stating that “the funds represent potential violations of the Federal Election Campaign Act” and “request that the funds be placed in the Treasury’s ‘general fund account.’”
