Notice of Collection of Delinquent Court Costs, Fines and Fees:
Failure to pay court ordered costs, fines, and fees in full by the specified due date may result in any and/or all of the following sanctions being taken against you without further notice.
Debt Collection Program
Pursuant to Section 488.5030 RSMo, this court has contracted with MSB (Municipal Services Bureau), a private collection agency, to collect past-due court-ordered penalties, fines, restitution, sanctions, court costs, including restitution and juvenile monetary assessments, or judgements due to the court.
When a defendant fails to pay court ordered court cost fines and fees within sixty (60) days of the date of the order, a equaling fourteen point nine percent (14.9%) of the amount due to the court will be added to the balance due on the case and the case is automatically referred for collection services. (The additional fourteen point nine percent (14.9%) covers the cost of collection and shall be retained by MSB from the funds received, prorated to the amount collected. The remaining portion will be forwarded to the court and credited toward the balance due.) The case will remain subject to collection until it is paid in full.
Missouri Tax Intercept Program
Pursuant to Section 488.5028 RSMo, this court will offset a defendant's Missouri Tax Refund when he or she fails to pay court ordered court costs, fines and fees within thirty (30) days of the date of the order. Any Missouri Tax Refund to which the defendant is entitled will be intercepted to satisfy the past due debt due to the court.
