What is a “Billing Number?” Back to top

A billing number is a 6-digit code assigned by the Department of Justice to an agency to be billed directly for government processing fees.

Some requesting agencies will cover the government processing fees by providing the billing number on the Request For Live Scan Service form. If the number is not present on the form and you were not given a Certifix Account Flyer by your requesting agency, you are responsible for paying all fees associated with the Live Scan.
