(A) Upon receipt of a financial disclosure statement, the commission, within a reasonable period of time, will review the financial disclosure statement to determine whether it is complete.
(B) If a person fails to respond to one or more required questions, the commission will deem the filing incomplete and return the statement, or a copy of the incomplete pages, with instructions for proper completion within fifteen days from the date the incomplete filing is returned to the person.
(C) If the commission does not receive a complete statement within the time designated under this rule, the commission will consider that the financial disclosure statement is not filed as required by law. The commission will send notice to the filer that late fees will be assessed if the statement is not filed within fifteen days of the date of the notice. The commission may handle the statement through its complaint process and ultimately refer persons who fail to comply with this rule for prosecution in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 102. of the Revised Code.
