72-1362.  Liability of successor. Any person, whether or not a covered employer, who acquires the organization, trade, or business or a substantial part of the assets thereof, from a covered employer, shall be liable, in an amount not to exceed the reasonable value of the organization, trade, business, or assets acquired, for any contributions or penalties due or accrued and unpaid by such covered employer, and the amount of such liability shall, in addition, be a lien against the property or assets so acquired which shall be prior to all other liens; provided, that the lien shall not be valid against one who acquires from the said predecessor any interest in the said property or assets in good faith, for value and without notice of the lien. The director shall, upon written request therefor, and with permission of the owner, furnish such prospective purchaser with a written statement of the amount of contributions and penalties due or accrued and unpaid by the said covered employer as of the date of such acquisition, and the amount of the liability of the successor or the amount of the said lien shall in no event exceed the liability disclosed by such statement. The foregoing remedies shall be in addition to all other existing remedies against the covered employer or his successor. Administrative determinations issued pursuant to this section shall become final unless, within fourteen (14) days after notice as provided in section 72-1368(5), Idaho Code, an appeal is filed with the department in accordance with the department’s rules. Appeal proceedings shall be in accordance with the provisions of section 72-1361, Idaho Code.
