FY 2022 Federal Tax Refund and Administrative Offset Fees – Update

DCL-21-12

Publication Date: October 5, 2021

DEAR COLLEAGUE LETTER

DCL-21-12

DATE:  October 5, 2021

TO:  State IV-D Directors

SUBJECT: FY 2022 Federal Tax Refund and Administrative Offset Fees Update

Dear Colleague:

As announced in DCL-21-11, the Department of Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service (BFS) delayed determining federal income tax refund and administrative offset fees for fiscal year (FY) 2022. Treasury has now announced that its fee for federal tax refund offsets will be $21.61 per offset effective November 1, 2021. The federal administrative offset fee will remain at $14.83 per offset.

Since BFS does not know the impact COVID-19 will have on its ability to collect debts, it may need to adjust its fees during FY 2022. BFS will notify us in advance of any changes to offset fees.

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

Sincerely,

Linda Boyer
Acting Commissioner
Office of Child Support Enforcement
