The FMS-1199 Form is a multi-purpose Regional Financial Center (RFC) document used
to initiate the process of debiting the agency for incorrect credits and reversing
credits for cancelled checks.
The following examples are scenarios of reasons the Processing Center’s (PC) may receive
When the RFC fails to locate the Courtesy Check Disbursement items although a check
cancels. The Department of the Treasury (Treasury) issues a replacement check based
on the nonreceipt procedures.
Treasury reverses erroneous cancelled check issuances and notifies the RFC responsible
for the cancellation. The RFC prepares an FMS – 1199 form and submits it to the Debt
Management Branch; the Accounting Technicians receives this information and completes
the SF-224 Form (Statement of Transactions) for courtesy check disbursements.
There is a possibility that duplicate payments exist for items appearing on the FMS-1199
form. Treasury issues a replacement check when the original payment is cancelled.
However, the PC may also issue another check for the original cancelled check.
