拦截 is an automated process that matches eligible payments to delinquent debt for individuals and organizations that function both as vendors for and customers of the Commonwealth of 质量achusetts.
The intercept process began in 1995 and is used by entities of the Commonwealth to assist them in collecting payments to satisfy delinquent debt. 目前, the Commonwealth satisfies debts owed to the state by offsetting payments from the 质量achusetts Management and Accounting Reporting System (MMARS) disbursement process, the 质量achusetts Department of Revenue’s tax refund system, and the 质量achusetts State Lottery Commission winning payouts over $600.
The 拦截 process is served to delinquent entities only after they have received four notices over a 120-day period.
The 审计长mg冰球突破最大奖 currently works with several dozen state agencies in an ongoing effort to protect public assets. As of December 31, 2020, the Comptroller 拦截 process has recovered more than 2亿美元 for taxpayers of the Commonwealth, comprising an essential component of the state’s non-tax revenue.
