Current through Register Vol. 61, No. 4, April 1, 2022

(1) When the Department of Justice (Department) receives payments from an obligor, withholder, or another issuer on behalf of the obligor, and two payments from the same source have been dishonored, the Department will hold future payments from that source until notification is received that the payment has cleared the issuer's financial institution, or for the following periods, whichever occurs first:
(a) For 18 working days, if the payment was made by paper check; or
(b) For 15 working days, if the payment was made electronically.
(2) The Department may waive the requirement provided in section (1) of this rule after a one-year period if no further payments from that issuer have been dishonored, or if the payment was dishonored for reasons that the Department has determined were beyond the issuer's control, such as an error on the part of the financial institution or the Department.
(3) The Department may assess a fee not to exceed $35 against the issuer of the payment.
