Political committees and other persons required to file campaign finance reports with the FEC must itemize certain disbursements and, for each itemized disbursement, must provide information including a brief description of the purpose of the disbursement. The ``purpose of disbursement'' entry, when considered along with the identity of the disbursement recipient, must be sufficiently specific to make the purpose of the disbursement clear. The guidance below includes a non-exhaustive list of ``purpose of disbursement'' entries that are generally acceptable, and a non- exhaustive list of terms that are generally not acceptable.
