Nevada Public Officers and Employees

Sec. § 281.561
Electronic filing by certain candidates and certain elected public officers; exceptions.


1.

Except as otherwise provided in this section and NRS 281.572, each candidate who will be entitled to receive annual compensation of $6,000 or more for serving in the office that the candidate is seeking, each candidate for the office of Legislator and each public officer who was elected to the office for which the public officer is serving shall file electronically with the Secretary of State a financial disclosure statement, as follows:

(a)

A candidate for nomination, election or reelection to public office shall file a financial disclosure statement not later than the 10th day after the last day to qualify as a candidate for the office. The statement must disclose the required information for the full calendar year immediately preceding the date of filing and for the period between January 1 of the year in which the election for the office will be held and the last day to qualify as a candidate for the office. The filing of a financial disclosure statement for a portion of a calendar year pursuant to this paragraph does not relieve the candidate of the requirement of filing a financial disclosure statement for the full calendar year pursuant to paragraph (b) in the immediately succeeding year, if the candidate is elected to the office.

(b)

Each public officer shall file a financial disclosure statement on or before January 15 of:

(1)

Each year of the term, including the year in which the public officer leaves office; and

(2)

The year immediately following the year in which the public officer leaves office, unless the public officer leaves office before January 15 in the prior year.
Ê The statement must disclose the required information for the full calendar year immediately preceding the date of filing.

2.

Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, if a candidate is serving in a public office for which the candidate is required to file a statement pursuant to paragraph (b) of subsection 1 or subsection 1 of NRS 281.559, the candidate need not file the statement required by subsection 1 for the full calendar year for which the candidate previously filed a statement. The provisions of this subsection do not relieve the candidate of the requirement pursuant to paragraph (a) of subsection 1 to file a financial disclosure statement for the period between January 1 of the year in which the election for the office will be held and the last day to qualify as a candidate for the office.

3.

A person elected pursuant to NRS 548.285 to the office of supervisor of a conservation district is not required to file a financial disclosure statement relative to that office pursuant to subsection 1.

4.

A candidate for judicial office or a judicial officer shall file a financial disclosure statement pursuant to the requirements of the Revised Nevada Code of Judicial Conduct. To the extent practicable, such a statement must include, without limitation, all information required to be included in a financial disclosure statement pursuant to NRS 281.571.
