The daily cash report assists the cashiers with balancing out at the end of
the day. The report lists every case a receipt was generated for, along with
the breakdown of how the payment was applied. The last page totals the
amount collected by payment method (cash, check, bond applied, jail in
lieu, etc.), along with the number of each type of transaction.
Cash Management
Receipting
The JMS Cash Management Module was developed with input and
guidance from the Michigan Supreme Court auditors and state court
administrators from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Administrative
Office of the District Courts.  The auditors stressed that the following
features be included

All receivables must be reduced by issuing a receipt.  Assessments
cannot be merely ‘wiped out’.
Receipts cannot be deleted, but must be voided and  retained on
the system.
Cash reports must display the breakdown of money collected (cash,
checks, credit card, etc.)
The system must have security in place so that not all court
personnel have access to all functions.
Audit trails must be maintained.

These features, along with other recommendations, have been incorporated into the JMS Cash Management Module.
All money ordered to be paid to the court is recorded in the JMS system.
Money collected that is not case related (marriage fees, copy fees, etc.) is
receipted in on a miscellaneous receipt. Receipts are generated when
bond is both posted and returned. Garnishment receipts are generated
when money is both received and disbursed.

Payment methods are used to identify the various types of payments. A
payment can also reflect a non-cash transaction. These types of
transactions can also reduce receivables. Examples: jail in lieu, community
service in lieu, waived, and suspended. In the JMS system a receivable
cannot be reduced without the generation of a receipt.
Daily Cash Report
Financial Viewing
NSF Alert
Various reports are available for cash management.  These include
receivables aging reports and collected receivables reports.  A cash
summary report can be generated at the end of the month to assist in the
preparation of the transmittal for the funding unit.
Because JMS uses the unique SID#, all cases for a defendant can be
linked.  The financial viewing feature allows the clerk to view all
assessments against a defendant, amount paid, amount due, and any
arrearages.  This feature is useful in the receipt entry where a cashier can
attempt to collect all money owed.
Fee Summary
This feature is available in the criminal and probation modules.  The fee
summary allows the clerk to view the assessments, payments, and balance
due for a case.  The clerk can indicate what percentage of a payment
should be applied to each assessment.  The clerk can also link a victim to
restitution ordered so that payments can be processed correctly.
If a defendant has paid the court with an NSF check, the clerk will be
