AP/Tax Returned Check Process Is Revised - 04/21/11

Accounts Payable has changed the process for handling checks returned by vendors and individuals paid in error. Effective immediately, the revised “AP/Tax Returned Check” process instructs business offices to send all returned Purdue checks, excluding payroll checks, to Accounts Payable for processing.

The process applies to all returned checks issued by AP to vendors and checks returned by individuals overpaid or paid in error by the Tax Office.

The process addresses these scenarios:
 1. A Purdue check returned from a vendor who has been paid in error.
 2. A personal check from an individual who has been overpaid or paid in error.
 3. A company check from a vendor who has been overpaid or paid in error.

Previously, vendor records were not accurate when a business office deposited a check directly.
