A judgment creditor shall serve upon the adverse party either personally or by mail, and file at any time or times not more than 6 months after the items have been incurred and before the time the judgment is fully satisfied, a memorandum of the items of the judgment creditor’s costs and necessary disbursements, verified by the judgment creditor or the judgment creditor’s attorney, stating that to the best of his or her knowledge and belief the items are correct, and that they have been necessarily or reasonably incurred in the action or proceeding.


Any party dissatisfied with the costs claimed may, within 5 days after the service of a copy of the bill of costs, file a motion to have the same taxed by the court in which the judgment was rendered, or by the judge thereof at chambers.
