 E-Filing Offered for Statement of Economic Interests


WAUKEGAN, Illinois - County Clerk Willard Helander announces e-filing as an option for government employees and officials who are required to file a Statement of Economic Interests. E-filing is fast, easy, reduces paper and postage costs, and is good for the environment.


"Recent legislative action has doubled the county's costs for voting by mail, so e-filing is one way to offset some of those new costs while making the process more convenient for filer," said Helander.


Historically, the filing process involved stacks of out-going letters, forms and postage, return of the completed forms, and mailing receipts to filers. Now, this can be done online.


The e-file program was designed and created by county staff at no additional cost. Plans for phase II include governmental agencies updating their list of required filers online and e-filers generating their receipts once the filing is successfully submitted.
