How Refunded Contributions are reported on WA C4 PDC vs Seattle
Refunded contributions appear differently on the WA C4 PDC vs Seattle’s.
On the PDC version of the report, the refunded contributions are just listed as expenses: This is from the 2015 State Candidate Guide:
“Expenditures: There are three different types of expenditures: standard monetary expenditures, petty cash disbursements, and orders placed but not yet paid (debts). Each is entered in the ORCA software as follows:
Standard Expenditures: Click Transactions > Expenditures > Monetary Expenditures. (Click refund contribution only when the campaign has deposited a contribution and later decides to return the money.)”
Only the Seattle version of the report uses Sch C to list the Refunded Contributions.
