67-2026A. Failure to use electronic funds transfer. (1) Any payor required under the provisions of section 67-2026, Idaho Code, to make a payment by electronic transfer who makes the payment by check or other nonelectronic means shall be liable for an additional amount of interest. The interest shall be calculated at the annual rate of twelve per cent (12%) simple interest for the period of time between the day the payment is due and the day the funds become available to the state treasurer for investment. Unless the payor establishes a contrary time, the time between receipt of a payment by means other than electronic funds transfer and the time the funds become available to the state treasurer for investment is presumed to be five (5) days.
(2) If the agency administering the tax determines that a payor’s failure to use electronic funds transfer when required is due to the payor’s negligence or is the result of the payor’s knowing disregard of the requirement, the agency may assert a penalty, in addition to the interest charged under subsection (1) of this section, of five hundred dollars ($500). If the payor establishes that the failure is not due to his negligence or the result of his knowing disregard of the requirement, the agency shall abate the penalty, but it shall not abate the interest due under subsection (1) of this section.
(3) Amounts due under this section shall be asserted by the agency administering the tax in the same manner provided by law for a failure to pay taxes or fees due.
