A Great Method for the Recovery of Debts

What We Do...

We assist North Carolina local governments with the recovery of any delinquent debts by offsetting debtors' North Carolina state tax refunds and Education lottery winnings.  As long as the debt is $50 or more and has been delinquent 60 days the process can begin. There is NO COST to participate with the N.C. Debt Setoff Clearinghouse. Since the debtor pays all fees, there is only the effort and cost of mailing the required notification letters.
