The Florida Commission on Ethics requires persons holding governmental positions to file a Financial Disclosure annually, and as a part of the Candidate Qualifying process during an election cycle. Fla. Stat. 112.3144 and 112.3145.
The Ethics Commission prepares a list of persons holding governmental positions who are required to file a financial disclosure for the previous year.

As an office holder, you may be required to file a Form 1 Statement of Financial Interests or Form 6 Full and Public Financial Disclosure within 60 days of appointment. Form 1F is required to be filed by officers within 60 days of leaving office. For information about each form, including who, when, and where forms are to be filed, visit the Florida Commission on Ethics website.
