When payers fail to complete disclosure forms or send payments, they are not in compliance with our levy. After the payer is warned and subsequently assessed personally liable for the debt, a 25 percent penalty is added to the original debt. Minn. Stat. §270C.70 provides for assessment against businesses, officers or other individuals responsible for honoring the levy.

Failure to honor is a three-step process:

  1. notifying the payer of the failure to honor our levy notice,
  2. assessing the payer liable for the debt and
  3. beginning the collection process against the payer.
