Vendor Offset

We may offset (take) payments made by the state of Minnesota to a vendor and use them to pay the vendor’s income tax debts or other debts we are collecting. (See Minnesota Statute 270C.65.)

We may take payments from all state agencies to a vendor (an individual or business that provides goods or services to the state).

We cannot take payments if the vendor: 

  • is appealing the debt
  • is in bankruptcy
  • has a payment agreement with us

Vendor Offset Releases

We will stop offsetting (taking) state payments when a vendor: 

  • Enters into a payment agreement with us
  • Pays their debts in full or has a credit balance due to overpayment
  • Files bankruptcy.
