A Django app to download IRS 527 filings and load them into a database

Project Description

A Django app for downloading and parsing IRS campaign finance data, inspired by the [New York Times Fech library](

[![PyPI version](](
[![Build Status](](

Some political committees report their contributions and expenditures to the IRS under § 527 of the U.S. tax code. The IRS publishes these disclosure forms as a bulk download. This app attempts to make sense of that archive.

The [archive]( is updated every Sunday at 1:00 AM.

Getting started

Install it.

$ pip install django-irs-filings

Add `irs` to your list of `INSTALLED_APPS` in ``.


Migrate your database.

$ python migrate irs

Finally, call the `updateIRS` command. This will download the latest zipped archive from the IRS website, unzip and parse it, and load it into the database.

$ python updateIRS
