Public Inspection

Notwithstanding the provision of Article 6 of the Public Officers Law, the information contained in a financial disclosure statement maintained by the Commission is available for public inspection, except for categories of value or amount in statements pertaining to reporting years prior to 2014, the names of unemancipated children, and any information deleted by the Commission pursuant to the filer's request. Notices of Delinquency are also available for public inspection. See 22 NYCRR §40.1(p)(1).

The Commission maintains statements pertaining to the current reporting year and the six previous reporting years.

A public inspection copy of a statement, or a Notice of Delinquency, may be viewed in the Commission offices, without any fee. Such a copy may be purchased for a fee of $.25 per page, plus an additional $1.00 mailing fee per statement. Purchased copies of public inspection documents can be obtained by the requestor at the Commission offices, through the mail, or by e-mail. A public inspection request form can be obtained on the Ethics Commission website, or by calling the Commission offices.

The identities of public inspectors, and documents pertaining to the requests for public inspection, are not available for public inspection.

Unredacted copies of financial disclosure statements may be produced by the Ethics Commission in compliance with subpoenas.

See 22 NYCRR §7400.5.
