Agency: Federal Trade Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The FTC is publishing procedures for the administrative collection of debts, including those arising under judgments and orders of the Commission. These procedures, where applicable, will allow the use of administrative offset and tax refund offset to satisfy such debts. The use of these tools is expected to enhance the FTC's enforcement and collection efforts. The FTC is also making a technical revision to its existing rule for administrative garnishment of non- Federal wages to update the name of the Treasury Department agency responsible for cross-servicing debts.
