Ivy Tech Community College is the latest school to use the state’s tax intercept program to collect past due bills.
Students with past due bills will be seeing less money in their tax refund checks. That’s because the state will divert part or all of their refund to the school. It mirros the process the state uses to collect back child support.
Administrators recently approved a nearly $9 million write-off for uncollected student fees. They hope the tax intercept program will lessen those losses.
