The FEC 48-IE Report is used to report Independent Expenditures of more than $10,000. This will report Independent Expenditures made by the committee, and estimated expenses will pull to this report.
If you need to file a report due to an Independent Expenditure over $1,000 within the 20 days before an election, please use the FEC Form 24-IE Report.
There will be situations where the 48-IE and 24-IE reports overlap. Since the same information is reported on both, most use the 24-IE instead of the 48-IE during the 20 days before an election. Please confirm with your FEC analyst if you are not sure which report to use.
