The Clerk of the Circuit Court requests departments to annually submit uncollectible items to the Board for write off.

Staff contacts the respective customers for collection of all returned item notifications.

Whereas the majority of returned items have been collected, only two remain uncollectible. These items have been assigned to Manatee County's collection agency on bid.
