RE: Federal Offset Collections Report for OCSE Cycle 2008-25

Dear Coordinators:

Enclosed is the Federal Offset Collections Report for OCSE Cycle 2008-25. This report represents Federal Tax Refund and/or administrative offsets, less the current fees of $14.65 per Federal Tax Offset and $17.00 per administrative offset, and any adjustments/reversals made during this collection cycle for the 2000 through 2007 processing years.

Based on 8,044 offsets, the net collections total for OCSE Cycle 2008-25 as of January 2, 2009 is $6,297,718. The year-to-date total for 3,218,916 offsets is $2,851,408,252. This compares to 1,464,412 offsets for $1,692,858,631 through the same collection cycle last year.

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).

Please Note: OCSE Cycle 2008-25 will mark the end of economic stimulus payments offset in 2008. Although IRS is required to process all 2008 economic stimulus payments by December 31, 2008, due to offset and processing schedule differences, collections from 2008 stimulus payments may continue to be offset and reported to OCSE for the next several weeks. Because of this, the Federal Offset Collections from Economic Stimulus Payments report will continue to be furnished as long as collections from these payments are received.

The funds will be transferred through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) on January 15, 2009. 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. 4, or via email at scollections@acf.hhs.gov

Sincerely,

Margot Bean
Commissioner
