How to Pay Lobbyist Late Fees

Lobbyist late fees can be paid via money order or check made out to the Campaign Finance Commission or in person with a Visa, Mastercard, or Discover credit card. Please include payment for all outstanding late fees in one check, if at all possible. The Commission will accept payments by personal check but we have attached W-9 information for the Commission [1] to expedite payment via company check, as well.

To expedite processing of checks, please write your lobbyist number on the memo line of the check and include a printout of your late fee notice in the mailing envelope.

Checks to pay lobbyist late fees should be mailed to the Commission at:
Georgia Campaign Finance
200 Piedmont Avenue S.E.
Suite 1402 West Tower
Atlanta, Georgia 30334
Attention: lobbyist late fees

Please allow at least two weeks processing time for all late fee check payments.

Appealing a Lobbyist Late Fee

The Commission may waive or suspend a late fee if the late fee has been assessed in error or if payment of the late fee would present an undue hardship. A hardship waiver request form must be submitted to the agency for the waiver of late fees to be considered

O.C.G.A. 21-5-6(b)(C).
