Nevada Public Financial Administration

Sec. § 353C.224
Distribution of money collected from debtor.


1.

If the State Controller collects any money owed to an agency from a debtor or receives any money from the employer of a debtor or a private debt collector or other person to whom the State Controller has assigned the collection of a debt owed to an agency, the State Controller shall, unless prohibited by federal law, transfer the net amount of money owed to the agency:

(a)

Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (c), to the Debt Recovery Account created by NRS 353C.226 if the debt is owed to an agency whose budget is supported exclusively or in part from the State General Fund.

(b)

Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (c), to an account specified by the agency if the debt is owed to an agency whose budget is supported exclusively from sources other than the State General Fund.

(c)

If a specific statute requires the money to be deposited in a specific account or used for a specific purpose, to the specific account required by statute or to the account from which money is expended for the purpose specified.

2.

If the State Controller is unable to determine where to transfer the net amount of money collected pursuant to subsection 1, the money must be deposited in the Debt Recovery Account. If an agency disputes the decision to deposit the money in the Debt Recovery Account pursuant to this subsection, the agency may, not later than 60 days after the money is deposited in the Debt Recovery Account, submit a written request to the Interim Finance Committee seeking its determination of where the money collected pursuant to subsection 1 should be deposited. If an agency fails to submit such a written request timely, the money must remain in the Debt Recovery Account and be used in accordance with NRS 353C.226.

3.

As used in this section, “net amount of money owed to the agency” means the money owed to an agency by a debtor that is collected or received by the State Controller minus:

(a)

Any fees owed pursuant to a specific statute to the State Controller for collection of the debt;

(b)

Any costs incurred or fees paid by the State Controller to collect any debt assigned to the State Controller for collection by the agency; and

(c)

Any interest on the debt collected by the State Controller under the terms of an agreement with the debtor, pursuant to NRS 353C.130, for the payment of the debt on an installment basis.
