Penal Code section 1205(e), which authorizes fees to be charged for accounts receivables and installment payments of fines, was amended in 2009 by Senate Bill 676 (Stats. 2009, ch. 606). The fee for installment payment accounts are equal to the administrative and clerical cost. The fee for establishing a receivable account is equal to the administrative and clerical cost not to exceed $30.00.
It is suggested that adequate documentation be kept to justify the amount assessed for administrative and clerical costs for both installment and accounts receivable payments in accordance with collections guidelines and standards and applicable statutes.
