RE: Federal Offset Collections Report for OCSE Cycle 2006-25

Dear Coordinators:

Enclosed is the Federal Offset Collections Report for OCSE Cycle 2006-25. This report represents Federal Tax Refund and/or administrative offsets, less the current fees of $13.65 per Federal Tax Offset and $17.00 per administrative offset, and any adjustments/reversals made during this collection cycle for the 1999 through 2006 processing years.

Based on 4,983 offsets, the net collections total for OCSE Cycle 2006-25 as of January 5, 2007 is $5,061,579. The year-to-date total for 1,398,699 offsets is $1,600,239,060. This compares to 1,425,382 offsets for $1,584,234,102 during the same collection cycle last year.

NOTE: This is the last collection report for 2006. Total collections of $1,600,239,060 represent a record breaking year, as this is the first time the Federal Offset program collected more than $1.6 billion (without tax credit or rebate offsets included). 34 states collected more in 2006 than in 2005, and 21 states collected an all-time program high. Congratulations on your success.

An electronic version of this report, along with additional detailed reports for your state, has been sent to your state via CONNECT:Direct (C:D).

The funds will be transferred through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) on January 18, 2007. If you have any questions regarding the transfer of collections to your state's account, please contact Elvis Davis or Cathy Lin at the Program Support Center. They can be reached at (301) 443-9560 or (301) 443-3309 respectively.

If you have any questions concerning your state’s collection reports, please contact the Federal Collections and Enforcement at (202) 401-9389, ext. 6, or via email at scollections@acf.hhs.gov.

Sincerely,

Margot Bean
