Title 31 published on 18-Mar-2017 03:27
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 31 CFR Part 285 after this date.
The Department of the Treasury, Bureau of the Fiscal Service, is amending its regulations concerning the offset of Federal benefit payments to collect past-due, legally enforceable nontax debt, centralized offset of Federal payments to collect nontax debts owed to the United States, salary offset, and transfer of debts to Treasury for collection. The amendment adjusts the time period in which Federal agencies must notify the Secretary of the Treasury of past due, nontax debt for the purposes of administrative offset. A statutory change, enacted as part of the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014, shortened the period of delinquency within which Federal agencies are required to notify the Secretary of past due, nontax debt from 180 days to 120 days.
The Department of the Treasury (Treasury), Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service), is amending its regulation governing the offset of tax refund payments to collect past-due support obligations. This rule will limit the time period during which Treasury may recover certain tax refund offset collections from States, when the States have already forwarded such funds to custodial parents as required or as authorized by applicable laws. This change will limit the time period during which Treasury may require States to return the offset funds to six months from the date of such collection, if Treasury has determined that the underlying refund was not due to the taxpayer.
This final rule adopts the interim rule, published in the Federal Register on January 28, 2011, concerning the collection of delinquent State unemployment compensation debts through the offset of overpayments of Federal taxes.
On October 7, 2012, the Secretary of the Treasury issued Treasury Order 136-01, establishing within the Department of the Treasury (“Department”) the Bureau of the Fiscal Service (“Fiscal Service”). The new bureau consolidated the bureaus formerly known as the Financial Management Service (“FMS”) and the Bureau of the Public Debt (“BPD”). Treasury Order 136-01 was published in the Federal Register on May 24, 2013. This consolidation requires reorganization of, and administrative changes to, title 31 of the Code of Federal Regulations. This final rule renames subchapter A, transfers parts 306 through 391 of subchapter B to subchapter A, and removes and reserves subchapter B in 31 CFR chapter II.
