There shall be provided on the District of Columbia individual income tax return a voluntary check-off that indicates an individual may contribute a minimum donation or gift of $1 to the Statehood Delegation Fund ("Fund"), established by [§ 1-129.08]. The contribution shall reduce any refund owed to the individual taxpayer or increase the tax owed by the individual taxpayer on the taxpayer's tax return. The funds generated from the tax check-off shall be earmarked for the Fund except that any cost incurred by the Mayor in collecting, processing, accounting for, or disbursing the funds generated by the tax check-off shall be reimbursed to the Mayor from the funds generated by the tax check-off.
b
Except as provided in subsection (b-1) of this section, the funds generated by the tax check-off established by subsection (a) of this section shall be transferred to the Fund pursuant to rules issued by the Mayor that establish timetables and procedures for transfer of the funds. Check-off funds shall be transferred to the Fund only after the costs to the Mayor described in subsection (a) of this section have been reimbursed.
b-1
(1) Until the District of Columbia Statehood Delegation Fund Commission, established by [§ 1-129.02], convenes, the funds generated by the tax check-off shall be deposited in equal amounts in the District of Columbia statehood funds established pursuant to [§ 1-123(g)].

Semiannually, each Representative and Senator shall submit to the Mayor, the Chairman of the Council, and the Chairman of the District of Columbia Board of Election and Ethics an accounting of the expenditures made with the tax check-off funds.
c
(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2) of this subsection, any unpaid District tax liability on an individual income tax return shall render any voluntary tax check-off election void. Any amount paid for the purpose of contributing to the Fund shall be used first to satisfy any unpaid tax liability, in whole or in part.

If there is any amount that remains after satisfaction of the unpaid tax liability, the amount shall be transferred to the Fund.
