Why is Trump “not allowed” to announce he is running in 2024 yet?

He has pretty much outright stated it in several of his recent speeches, but occasionally mentions how he is told he is not allowed to make an official announcement yet. Why is that? What are the rules that prevent him from announcing before a certain date, and what would happen if he did?

Here is where he mentions “campaign finance laws” that prevent him from announcing. I cant find any info on what the laws actually are.

But for example at the rally in Michigan the other day, he was making comments like “We will take the white house back in 2024”
