TPA members are reminded PS Form 3526, Statement of Ownership, Management, and Circulation, must be filed by Sept. 30 with the post office where newspapers are mailed. In addition, the statement must be published during the month of October.
The filing and publication of this form is a requirement for maintaining periodicals mailing privileges. Dailies must publish a completed copy of this form in their newspaper by Oct. 10, and non-dailies by Oct. 31.
The ability to claim electronic subscribers is incorporated into the form. There are specific requirements as to what defines a paid electronic subscriber. A print subscriber that is given free access to your electronic version is not a paid electronic subscriber. A paid electronic subscriber must pay a separate subscription rate that you have established for electronic subscribers.
A copy of the form is available for download on the TPA website – click here.
