Queries to Search for Revenue Setoff Vendors
Vendors to the State at times may be served with a garnishment, levy or have debt owed the State. These vendors may be flagged in SWIFT and all or part of any payments made by an agency can be diverted in SWIFT to satisfy the debt.
It may help to avoid issues, if you know in advance that the vendor has been flagged for setoff and the payment will be diverted. Two SWIFT queries can be used to search for Revenue Setoff Vendors. Both queries listed below should be run because each query searches separate system tables:
M-AP-GBL-REV-SETOFF-VENDORS: This query identifies vendors who will have payments held because MMB has been served with a garnishment or levy. For these vendors, MMB will be alerted that there are payments on hold. If the hold is for a garnishment, the agency paying the vendor is usually aware a garnishment exists and they will need to calculate the amount to be sent to the creditor to satisfy the garnishment. A hold to satisfy a levy is processed by MMB because the entire payment can be taken to satisfy the debt.
M-AP-GBL-REV-SETOFF-VNDRS: This query identifies vendors who have been flagged with a specific code on the vendor file because their tax ID matches a debtor on the Department of Revenue debt file. Payments to these vendors are stopped and depending on the amount of the debt, a portion or entire payment is diverted to the Department of Revenue. MMB loads an updated Department of Revenue debt file weekly.
