(b) An expenditure made by one group, on behalf of another group that is controlled by a candidate is considered a contribution and may not exceed the $2,000 limitation set by AS 15.13.070 .

(c) A candidate, group, or nongroup entity may not file a joint report with another candidate, group, or nongroup entity.

(e) Two or more candidates, two or more groups, or two or more nongroup entities may share in campaign efforts if the cost of and receipts from shared efforts are allocated equally to each participating candidate's, group's, or nongroup entity's campaign.

(f) If the costs of and receipts from shared efforts are allocated equally to each participant of a shared campaign, neither the costs nor the receipts are considered a contribution from one participant to another.

(g) Each candidate, group, or nongroup entity filing reports under AS 15.13 and this chapter must complete a "shared campaign activities" form to report the candidate's, group's, or nongroup entity's share of the receipts and expenditures of a shared campaign effort, if the shared effort involves activities with a combined cost that exceeds $2,000, including fundraising activities or campaign media consulting services.

(h) A proportionate share of an expenditure in a shared campaign effort benefiting a candidate, group, or nongroup entity other than the candidate, group, or nongroup entity paying for the effort is a contribution by

(2) the paying group to the other group; or

(2) the paying nongroup entity to the other nongroup entity.

(i) Media communications about a shared campaign activity are properly identified if the identification includes the words "paid for by" and the name of each candidate, group, or nongroup entity sharing in the cost of the communications. The address of each participating candidate, group, or nongroup entity need not be listed. However, if a communication is paid for in its entirety by only one of the participants, then full identification under 2 AAC 50.306 is required.
