TRECS (Tax Refund Exchange and Compliance System) is a results-oriented process to help counties collect outstanding debts in a timely, cost-effective manner. Senate Enrolled Act No. 515 - codified in IC-6-8.1-9.5 allows Indiana local governments to submit debts of at least $25.00 to the Indiana Department of Revenue (IDoR) and offset personal income tax refunds. The Association of Indiana Counties has an agreement with IDoR to function as the one clearinghouse entity to submit debts on behalf of local governments. The clearinghouse will add $20.00 to the amount of the debt if a setoff occurs. There is no added cost to the local unit.
The AIC has contracted with the National Association of Counties Financial Services Center (NACo FSC) to perform the back-office functions of the debt setoff program. NACo FSC processes and submits the consolidated files to IDoR and manages a toll free helpline for technical assistance to the counties.
Should you have any questions concerning the program, you can contact the Project Manager - Jacque Clements at firstname.lastname@example.org or 3177-829-3655.
