Rules and Regulations to Comply With the Setoff Debt Collection Act [24 VAC 30 ‑ 160]
Repeal of Rules and Regulations to Comply with the Setoff Debt Collection Act
General Information
Action Summary The Setoff Debt Collection Act (§ 58.1-520 et seq. of the Code of Virginia) allows state agencies to collect against delinquent debts through setoff of tax return funds if those state agencies follow the procedures and notice requirements of that Act. Section 33.2-1229 of the Code of Virginia authorizes the Commissioner of Highways to use the Setoff Debt Collection Act to collect certain civil penalties set out in § 33.2-1229. The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) promulgated the Rules and Regulations to comply with the Setoff Debt Collection Act (24VAC30-160) in 1984, and the regulation has not been amended since. However, all of the substantive portions that affect citizens are duplicative of provisions in the Setoff Debt Collection Act. Keeping the current administrative sections would be inefficient, confusing and duplicative. Therefore, the CTB is repealing this regulation.
