If a lobbying entity has spent a cumulative or estimated 8 hours or more lobbying during the preceding calendar, they must file a Quarterly Report using the Online Lobbying Entity Registration & Reporting System.
Lobbying entities will need to follow these steps to file Quarterly Reports:
- Lobbying entities must first register. Registration requires a Portland Online Account.
- Once your registration has been activated by the Auditor's Office, you will be able to login to the reporting module using your lobbying entity's Portland Online Account.
- From the Lobbying Entity Registration & Reporting Main Menu, click once on the words "Quarterly Statements."
- You will be taken to the Lobbying Entity Statements page. Detailed instructions for creating, amending and filing your report online can be found in the "Lobbying Entity Registration & Reporting 101" instructions.
Quarterly reports will require an electronically signed declaration by an authorized Lobbying Entity official to finalize the report.
