null How does a debtor know that he/she is in the Treasury Offset Program delinquent debtor database?
Before KDOL refers a debt to the Treasury Offset Program, it will send the debtor all due process notices concerning the debt.
These notices include: written notification of the nature and amount of the debt, the intention of the agency to collect the debt through administrative offset and an explanation of rights (inspection, copying, review and repayment opportunities). KDOL has therefore informed the delinquent debtor of the potential referral of the debt to the TOP. Treasury will inform the debtor when an offset is taken. You are also entitled at any time to inquire in writing whether you are in the delinquent debtor database maintained by the U.S. Treasury, which will answer you in writing.
