Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(15 ILCS 405/10.05d)
Deductions for delinquent obligations owed to units of local government, school districts, public institutions of higher education, and clerks of the circuit courts.
Section 10.05 and this Section, the Comptroller may enter into intergovernmental agreements with a unit of local government, a school district, a public institution of higher education, or the clerk of a circuit court, in order to provide for (i) the use of the Comptroller's offset system to collect delinquent obligations owed to that entity and (ii) the payment to the Comptroller of a processing charge of up to $15 per transaction for offsets processed without the assistance of a third-party vendor and a processing charge of up to $20 per transaction for offsets processed with the assistance of a third-party vendor. A third-party vendor may be selected by the Comptroller, pursuant to lawful procurement practices, in order to provide enhanced identification services to the State. The
Comptroller shall deduct, from a warrant or other payment described in Section 10.05, in accordance with the procedures provided therein, its processing charge and the amount
certified as necessary to satisfy, in whole or in part, the
delinquent obligation owed to the unit of local government, school district, public institution of higher education, or clerk of the circuit court, as applicable. The Comptroller shall provide
the unit of local government, school district, public institution of higher education, or clerk of the circuit court, as applicable, with the address to which the warrant or other
payment was to be mailed and any other information pertaining to each
person from whom a deduction is made pursuant to this Section. All deductions ordered under this Section and processing charges imposed under this Section shall be deposited into the Comptroller Debt Recovery Trust Fund, a special fund that the Comptroller shall use for the collection of deductions and processing charges, as provided by law, and the payment of deductions and administrative expenses, as provided by law.
Upon processing a deduction, the Comptroller shall give written notice to the person subject to the offset. The notice shall inform the person that he or she may make a written protest to the Comptroller within 60 days after the Comptroller has given notice. The protest shall include the reason for contesting the deduction and any other information that will enable the Comptroller to determine the amount due and payable. The notice may inform the person that, in lieu of protest, he or she may provide written authority to the Comptroller to process the deduction immediately. Upon receiving the written authority provided by the person subject to the offset to process the deduction immediately, the Comptroller may process the deduction immediately. The intergovernmental agreement entered into under Section 10.05 and this Section shall establish procedures through which the Comptroller shall determine the validity of the protest and shall make a final disposition concerning the deduction. If the person subject to the offset has not made a written protest within 60 days after the Comptroller has given notice or if a final disposition is made concerning the deduction, the Comptroller shall pay the deduction to the unit of local government, school district, public institution of higher education, or clerk of the circuit court, as applicable, from the Comptroller Debt Recovery Trust Fund.
For the purposes of this Section, "clerk of a circuit court" means a clerk of the circuit court in any county in the State.
For purposes of this Section, "third-party vendor" means the vendor selected by the Comptroller to provide enhanced identification services to the State.
