Receipts result from detection of violations of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). When a violation is detected, the face value of the SNAP benefit involved is collected. As an incentive to detect and collect these violations, the USDA allows the commission to retain 50% of the money collected. The state portion is deposited as revenue object 3602. The federal portion is deposited as revenue object 3600 and an adjustment is made to the SNAP letter-of-credit for future federal fund receipts.

Due Date
