To help other County agencies in achieving their program objectives by:
- Providing professional billing and collection services to maximize potential revenues at a cost lower than these agencies can achieve through their own efforts or through another collection service; and
- Assisting these agencies in other aspects of their operations whenever possible.
Purpose of Department of Revenue Recovery
The Department of Revenue Recovery has been established pursuant to Sacramento County Code 2.09.340, to function as a centralized billing and collection function by providing agencies and departments within the County with professional collection services for the resolution of debts owed to the County. Using collection enforcement techniques in compliance with State and Federal laws and always mindful of the County's interest in the welfare of its residents, the Department of Revenue Recovery will ensure that, wherever possible, the taxpayers of Sacramento County are not required to bear the added burden of indebtedness that is the legal responsibility of a specific individual.
