§ 1.1941   Exemptions.

   (a) The preceding sections of this part, to the extent they reflect
   remedies or procedures prescribed by the Debt Collection Act of 1982
   and the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996, such as administrative
   offset, use of credit bureaus, contracting for collection agencies, and
   interest and related charges, do not apply to debts arising under, or
   payments made under, the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (26
   U.S.C. 1 et seq.); the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 301 et seq.),
   except to the extent provided under 42 U.S.C. 404 and 31 U.S.C.
   3716(c); or the tariff laws of the United States. These remedies and
   procedures, however, may be authorized with respect to debts that are
   exempt from the Debt Collection Act of 1982 and the Debt Collection
   Improvement Act of 1996, to the extent that they are authorized under
   some other statute or the common law.

   (b) This section should not be construed as prohibiting the use of
   these authorities or requirements when collecting debts owed by persons
   employed by agencies administering the laws cited in paragraph (a) of
   this section unless the debt arose under those laws. However, the
   Commission is authorized to assess interest and related charges on
   debts which are not subject to 31 U.S.C. 3717 to the extent authorized
   under the common law or other applicable statutory authority.
