Any person required to file a statement of economic interests
under this Article who willfully files a false or incomplete statement shall be
guilty of a Class A misdemeanor; provided, a filer's statement made in reasonable, good faith reliance on the guidance provided by the Secretary of State pursuant to Section 4A-102 or his or her ethics officer shall not constitute a willful false or incomplete statement.
Except when the fees and penalties for late filing have been waived under Section 4A-105, failure to file a statement within the time prescribed shall result in
ineligibility for, or forfeiture of, office or position of employment, as
the case may be; provided, however, that if the notice of failure to
file a statement of economic interests provided in Section 4A-105 of this
Act is not given by the Secretary of State or the county clerk, as the case

of actual notice of the failure to file. The Secretary of State shall provide the Attorney General with the names of persons who failed to file a statement. The county clerk shall provide the State's Attorney of the county of the entity for which the filing of a statement of economic interest is required with the name of persons who failed to file a statement.
