Collections by Local Treasurers (language only)

Item 73 #1c

Item 73 #1c

Compensation Board


Page 52, line 19, after "fee." insert:

"Effective July 1, 2015, as provided in § 19.2-349, Code of Virginia, treasurers not being compensated on a contingency basis as of January 1, 2015 shall be prohibited from being compensated on  a contingency basis but shall instead be compensated for administrative costs pursuant to § 58.1-3958, Code of Virginia.  Treasurers currently collecting a contingency fee shall be eligible to contract on a contingency fee basis.  Effective July 1, 2015, any treasurer collecting a contingency fee shall retain only the expenses of collection, and the excess collection shall be divided between the state and the locality in the same manner as if the collection had been done by the attorney for the Commonwealth."


(This amendment restores the policy which was included in the 2015 Appropriations Act for collection of delinquent accounts by local treasurers, and modifies the language to permit treasurers currently collecting on a contingency fee basis to continue to do so. An identical amendment is included in Item 70 of Senate Bill 29.)
