Income Tax Intercept

Tax Interception

Revenue Recovery participates annually in the California Franchise Tax Board Income Tax Refund Intercept Program. Small Claims judgments, court ordered fines, restitution fines, probation costs, attorney fees, and delinquent unsecured taxes, are some of the types of eligible accounts that are subject to tax refund intercept. Tax refunds are considered extra income and are taken to pay any unpaid amount due. To protect against having your tax refund intercepted, it is important to pay your account in full.
