      Discussion: Mr. Randy Tilley stated they would like to offset tax debt owed to the state. Currently the Department of Labor has been doing this. We are going to do this with liened tax debt owed to the state by vendors of the state. There are 156 potential vendors.

      Mr. Wasden asked how these offsets come about.

      Mr. Tilley responded that individuals are required to file their returns and they may not pay an amount due the state. We will assess and notify them. If they fail to protest the notification, the Tax Commission will put a lien on them.

      Mr. Tilley said the majority of the payments collected from the offsets will go to the General Fund as per statute.

      Resolution: Mr. Wasden moved to approve item 7. Mr. Ysursa seconded the motion. The motion carried on a unanimous voice vote.
