102-5-06 Financial disclosure filing requirement; public officials subject to multiple filing requirements; voluntary filers.

(A) A person required to file a financial disclosure statement under more than one requirement of Chapter 102. of the Revised Code, because the person holds or held more than one public office or position during the calendar year or financial disclosure filing cycle, will be required to file only one statement for a calendar year.

(B) Generally, the statement required to be filed must meet the highest level of disclosure in accordance with the following:

(1) Whenever there is more than one level of disclosure involved, the statement that must be completed and the questions that must be answered must relate to the public position held or, in the case of a candidate for elective office, the position sought, that require the highest level of disclosure. If the person holds more than one filing position, but all have the same level of disclosure, then paragraph (B)(2) of this rule applies.

(2) If the filer must file for a current position, and a position he or she held in the past, both with the same level of disclosure, the statement that must be completed and the questions that must be answered must relate to the position currently held. If the person is in both filing positions simultaneously, or has left both filing positions, then paragraph (B)(3) of this rule applies.

(3) If the person holds more than one filing position at the same time, where all have the same level of disclosure, and one is an elected position or candidate for elective office, the statement that must be completed and the questions that must be answered must relate to the elective office. If none of the simultaneous positions held is an elective position, then paragraph (B)(4) of this rule applies.

(4) If the person holds more than one non-elective filing position at the same time, where all have the same level of disclosure, and one of the positions is employment, the statement that must be completed and the questions that must be answered must relate to the employment.

(C) The fee to be paid and the person or entity responsible for paying the fee is determined by the statement that is to be filed and the questions that are to be answered.

(D) If a person is required, for any filing year, to file both a confidential and a public statement, the person should file the statement indicated by paragraph (B) of this rule. The statement filed is a public record, regardless of which statement the person completes.

(E) The fee described in division (E)(1) of section R.C. 102.02 of the Revised Code must accompany a statement filed by a voluntary filer.
