DEAR COLLEAGUE LETTER

DCL-12-13

DATE:  September 24, 2012

TO:  ALL STATE IV-D DIRECTORS

RE:  Federal Offset and Pre-Offset Notice Program Fees

Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce that both Offset Program and Pre-offset Notice fees will remain unchanged from last year.  For FY2013, the fee for federal tax refund offsets will continue at $14.65 per offset.  The fee for administrative offsets will remain at $16.00 per offset.

For states that have OCSE issue their Pre-Offset Notices, FY2013 costs will remain at $0.54 per notice.  These costs cover the postage and envelopes, as well as printing, stuffing and mailing.

If you have questions, please contact Rebecca Hamil at 202-205-5612 or rebecca.hamil@acf.hhs.gov .

Sincerely,

Vicki Turetsky
Commissioner
Office of Child Support Enforcement
