PRIVACY AND REPORTING REQUIREMENTS
VTB is required by Washington State (“State”) Law to report to the Public Disclosure Commission (“PDC”) and make publicly available, the information of any donor or contribution of either cash or in-kind services.

Acceptance of any contribution, gift or grant is at the discretion of VTB.
No irrevocable gift, whether outright or life-income in character, will be accepted if under any reasonable set of circumstances the gift would jeopardize the donor’s financial security.
VTB will refrain from providing advice about the tax or other treatment of gifts and will encourage donors to seek guidance from their own professional advisers to assist them in the process of making their donation.
VTB will accept cash donations, which can be made by check, credit card, or ACH. Gifts of in-kind services will be accepted at the discretion of VTB.
Certain other gifts, real property, personal property, in-kind gifts, non-liquid securities, and contributions whose sources are not transparent or whose use is restricted in some manner, must be reviewed and approved by VTB, prior to acceptance, due to the special obligations raised, liabilities they may pose, or campaign finance laws.
VTB will provide receipts to donors meeting tax requirements for property received by the campaign as a gift.
VTB will not compensate, whether through commissions, finders’ fees, or other means, any third party for directing a gift or a donor to VTB.
EXPENDITURE OF DONATIONS AND CAMPAIGN FUNDS
We will not accept any gift unless it can be used or expended consistently with the purpose and mission of VTB.
VTB will respect the intent of the donor relating to gifts for restricted purposes.
By accepting this Agreement, you give Vote Tyler Byrd permission to use your donations or contributions, whether or not surplus, solicited for, or received by Vote Tyler Byrd in any future race whether for re-election or election to an office other than the office designated during the campaign in which you contributed.
