COMPTROLLER'S MEMORANDUM NO. 06 (1995-96)
SUBJECT: MOTOR VEHICLE IMPACT FEE REFUNDS
The Supreme Court has ruled on the outstanding issues regarding the motor vehicle impact fee refunds. The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) is preparing to submit the first payment tape to this office for processing.
As indicated in Comptroller's Memorandum No. 23 (1994-95), each agency is required to obtain from DHSMV a file or listing of persons eligible to receive the refunds, and to provide the Comptroller with information concerning debts owed to the State and delinquent child support obligations by persons authorized to receive impact fee refunds. Further, if an agency does not report any debts or obligations to this office, we will proceed with processing the refunds under the assumption that the agency has no outstanding debts or obligations that should be reported for this purpose.
We have received files of debts and obligations from some agencies. Due to the time that has elapsed since the initial submissions, we would like to give agencies an opportunity to submit updated files, or initial files if no files have been submitted, before we begin processing the refunds. However, if an agency is submitting an updated file, it should be submitted as a replacement of the first file submitted, as the information in the first file will not be processed. If an updated file is not submitted, we will process the first file. All files of debts and obligations must be received by this office by October 26, 1995. The files should be submitted to:
|Elwood McElhaney, Chief|
|Bureau of Accounting Systems Design|
|Department of Banking and Finance|
|G-64 Collins Building|
|Tallahassee, FL 32399-0350|
Agencies should refer to Comptroller's
Memorandum No. 23 (1994-95) regarding notices that will be given
to persons who owe debts or obligations, and other procedures
applicable to processing these refunds. The General Counsel of
each agency will be furnished a list of persons have
been provided notices of right to a hearing regarding the proposed
deduction for the debt or obligations. Questions regarding these
procedures should be directed to:
|DHSMV Files||Carl Ford||DHSMV||(904) 487-1805|
|DBF File Submissions||Emily Beck||DBF||(904) 488-0210|
|Hearings, Legal Issues||Jo Schultz||DBF||(407) 245-0760|
|Other Issues||Sharon Schrader||DBF||(904) 488-4098|
The first payment tape should be submitted to this office by the DHSMV within the next week. At a later date, DHSMV will submit a final payment tape, containing the refunds processed and authorized after the first submission. Agencies will again be given the opportunity to submit updated debt and obligation files prior to our processing the final payment tape.
