130.0094 Bad Debts—Recovery Through Litigation. The recovery through the process of litigation of amounts previously written off as bad debts has the same status as amounts recovered through any other process. The recovered amounts represent the sale elements in the transactions written off and are not damages recovered. Also, there is no offset for court costs or attorney's fees when the recovered amount is reported for sales and use tax purposes. These are merely collection expenses, deduction for which is prohibited by Regulation 1642(b)(2). 9/14/72.
