Explanation of Miscellaneous Charges and Reimbursements

Miscellaneous Charges are amounts of money paid to an agency by the county to cover various client expenses, such as initial clothing, incentives, or birthday gifts. Reimbursements occur when a home is paid a portion of that money.

Once the Enterprise Accounting functionality is enabled, Charges and Reimbursements can be “Posted” to the accounting system. Once Posted, these Charges and Reimbursements can no longer be modified. Instead they must be added or adjusted.
