Thus, if an individual is entitled to an income tax refund and is also indebted to the county, the county may refund entitlement to a portion on all of the refund to pay the debt owed the county. The Act requirements, which must be followed by the county to submit a claim to the department, which shall be administered by the Treasurer’s Office. In addition, the county must establish a hearing process to provide a taxpayer an opportunity to contest the validity of the debt asserted by the county and the county’s claim of set-off.
