AN ACT to amend the Illinois State Collection Act of 1986
by changing Section 5.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
Section 5. The Illinois State Collection Act of 1986 is
amended by changing Section 5 as follows:
(30 ILCS 210/5) (from Ch. 15, par. 155)
Sec. 5. Rules; payment plans; offsets.
(a) State agencies shall adopt rules establishing formal
due dates for amounts owing to the State and for the referral
of seriously past due accounts to private collection
agencies, unless otherwise expressly provided by law or rule.
Such procedures shall be established in accord with sound
(b) Agencies may enter deferred payment plans for
debtors of the agency and documentation of this fact retained
by the agency, where the deferred payment plan is likely to
increase the net amount collected by the State.
(c) State agencies may use the Comptroller's Offset
System provided in Section 10.05 of the State Comptroller Act
for the collection of debts owed to the agency. All debts
that exceed $1,000 and are more than 90 days
1 year past due
shall be placed in the Comptroller's Offset System, unless
the State agency shall have entered into a deferred payment
plan or demonstrates to the Comptroller's satisfaction that
referral for offset is not cost effective.
(d) State agencies shall develop internal procedures
whereby agency initiated payments to its debtors may be
offset without referral to the Comptroller's Offset System.
(e) State agencies or the Comptroller may remove claims
from the Comptroller's Offset System, where such claims have
been inactive for more than one year.
