Question
The January C-4 report for my continuing committee was rejected because the filer ID/election 2017 conflicts with 2018.
Answer

Another variation of the error message is "Filer ID not registered for 20XX."

Political committees "close out" at the end of every calendar year. In January, create a new committee using the setup wizard in ORCA, import your names and addresses from the previous year and enter your beginning bank balance as carry forward cash; File>Committee Information>Carry Forward Cash. Click the green "plus" sign and enter the amount and a description. Your contact names, addresses, occupation and employer will import. The transactions of contributions and expenditures will not import into the New Year as your aggregates are tracked by calendar year.
