PUBLIC EMPLOYEE RETIREMENT SYSTEM
59-1325. Employer remittance to board — Collection of delinquencies. (1) Each employer, or, where the employer’s payroll is paid separately by departments, each department of the employer, shall remit to the retirement board all contributions required of it and its employees on the basis of salaries paid by it during each pay period together with whatever contributions or contribution credits may be required to correct previous errors or omissions. These remittances shall be accompanied by such reports as are required by the board to determine contributions required and member benefit entitlements established under this chapter and, unless extended in writing by the executive director, shall be remitted no later than five (5) days after each pay date. Such contributions shall be remitted together with contributions remitted pursuant to subsection (5) of section 59-1308, Idaho Code, as directed by the board. Thereafter, unpaid contributions shall be considered delinquent and interest will begin accruing at the greater of the rate of interest provided in section 28-22-104(1), Idaho Code, or regular interest. The executive director may, in his discretion, waive these interest charges in extraordinary circumstances.
(2) If any employer shall fail or refuse to remit any such contributions within thirty (30) days after the date due, the board may certify to the state controller the fact of such failure or refusal and the amount of the delinquent contribution or contributions, together with interest. A copy of such certification and request shall be furnished the delinquent employer.
(3) The state controller shall deduct said amount as an offset, together with interest charges, from any funds payable then or in the future to the delinquent employer and shall pay such amounts to the retirement fund.
