The department may enter into contracts with out-of-state attorneys, other state tax agencies, the federal government, and others located outside the state for out-of-state collections of taxes, fees, and other debt owed the state when the department determines that the amount collected under a contract will likely exceed the cost of collection. The department shall deposit the gross amount collected in the account or fund to which the tax, fee, or other debt was originally owed. The costs of collection are statutorily appropriated, as provided in 17-7-502, from the general fund to the department for the purposes of this section.
