A. If a recipient of title IV-D services receives at least five hundred dollars of support in a federal fiscal year and the recipient has never received assistance under a state or tribal title IV-A program, the department shall charge an annual fee of twenty-five dollars to the recipient of title IV-D services. The department shall retain the fee from future collections of support once the threshold of five hundred dollars has been met. If, after the threshold of five hundred dollars has been met, no further support collections are received or less than twenty-five dollars is received, the department may charge the fee to the recipient of services after notice advising the recipient of the deadline for payment of the fee. If the recipient does not pay the fee by the deadline, the department may retain the fee from future collections of support.

C. The department shall transmit to the federal government its portion of each fee withheld pursuant to subsections A and B of this section and shall deposit, pursuant to sections 35-146 and 35-147, the remainder in a child support enforcement administration fund.
