Instructions and navigation tips for completing the Statement of Financial Interest Form
  1. As you click the link for each item number, a new "pop-up" window will open on top of the instruction page for you to provide, correct, update, or simply confirm the information requested for that item.  If you filed online last year, this year's form will be pre-populated with last year's data.  Note: For calendar year 2014 submissions, due to extensive changes to the form, only items 1 - 5 will prepopulate.  Work on only one item at a time.  Either print a copy of the instructions page using your browser's print button or move the pop-up box, by dragging it by its title bar, so the instructions for that item are visible.
  2. Click the SAVE button to save your entry and to close the pop-up window for that item before moving on to another item.  You will need to click SAVE to complete the item even if you made no changes.  You will see [ COMPLETE ] beside the number of the item you just completed if it was saved properly.
  3. You can review your statement prior to submitting it by clicking the review link in the last paragraph.  This will open the statement full-screen in another window as a report in Adobe Reader PDF format.  To get back to the form--which still needs to be submitted--you can close the previewed statement by clicking the X in the top-right corner of the report window, or simply alt-tab back to the form.
  4. After completing all items and reviewing your statement, click the Submit button at the bottom of the form to transmit your statement to AOPC's Judicial Services unit.  Your statement can only be submitted after all items are saved and marked as [ COMPLETE ]If the submission was successful, you will immediately see a confirmation screen and, shortly thereafter, receive a confirmation email from AOPC Auto Services.
Once you have submitted your statement, if you determine that you need to file an amended form, you will need to contact Judicial Services.   After your form has been reopened by Judicial Services, remember you will have to save each item in order to submit your amended form.

Is there a limit to the number of entries for Direct or Indirect Sources of Income?
No, there isn’t a limit to the number of entries that the online form will accept.  The online form expands to accept the entries.

 
Why doesn’t a pop-up window display when I click on the item number on the Instructions page?
Clicking on an item number on the Instructions page should cause a pop-up window to “pop-up” in front of all other open windows.  When you click on an item number and nothing seems to happen, you can usually find the pop-up window behind the active window.  Minimize the active window by clicking on the Minimize button on the right-hand side of the Title bar or by clicking on the representation of the active window in your task bar.  Alternatively, you could alt-tab to the pop-up window by holding down the Alt key on your keyboard and pressing the Tab key one tap at a time until you get to the correct window.  You can prevent the pop-up window from opening behind the active window by closing each pop-up window you view before clicking on the next item number.
