check off fee
 n.— «Also Monday, the court upheld a federal program that requires beef producers to pay $1 for each head of cattle sold in, or imported into, the USA for a fund that produces advertising such as the “Beef: It’s What’s for Dinner” campaign. Ranchers had claimed that the “check off” fee, as it is called, was a violation of their free-speech rights.» —“Court: Shackles sway jurors in death cases” by Joan Biskupic in Washington, D.C. USA Today May 23, 2005.
