SUBJECT: FY 2019 Federal Offset and Pre-Offset Notice Program Fees

Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce the fiscal year 2019 fee for federal tax refund offsets will be reduced to $19.30 per offset. The fee for federal administrative intercepts will remain at $13.12 per offset.

Each year, Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service reviews its operational costs and fee structure. This year that review resulted in a reduction of the tax refund offset fee and no change to the administrative offset fee.

We are also pleased to announce that the OCSE Pre-Offset Notice fee will remain at $0.52 per notice.

The 2019 fiscal year begins on October 1, 2018, and ends September 30, 2019.

If you have questions, please contact the Federal Collections and Enforcement team at scollections@acf.hhs.gov.
