10. Abstract: The Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 requires that agencies collect taxpayer identification numbers (TINs) from individuals who do business with the Government, including contractors and recipient of credit, licenses, permits and benefits. TINs will be used to process all electronic payments (refunds) made to licensees by electronic funds transfer by the Department of the Treasury (Treasury). Treasury will use TINs to determine whether the refund can be used to administratively offset any delinquent debts reported to the Treasury by other government agencies. In addition, TINs will be used to collect and report to the Treasury any delinquent indebtedness arising out of the licensee's or applicant's relationship with the NRC.
