Cost Recovery Fees Changes

The cost recovery fee is comprised of two separate fees: the filing enforcement fee and the collection fee. We assess the cost recovery fee to recover program costs when individuals and business entities fail to file tax returns upon demand or pay their delinquent taxes. The cost recovery fee amounts are reviewed yearly imposed under the authority of Revenue and Taxation Code (R&TC) Section 19254.
