97B.9 Contributions---payment and interest.

Contributions unpaid on the date on which they are due and payable as prescribed by the department, shall bear interest at the combined interest and dividend rate required under section 97B.70 for the applicable calendar year, provided that the department may prescribe fair and reasonable regulations pursuant to which the interest shall not accrue with respect to contributions required. Interest collected pursuant to this section shall be paid into the Iowa public employees' retirement fund.

1. If within thirty days after due notice the employer defaults in payment of contributions or interest thereon, the amount due shall be collected by civil action in the name of the department, and the employer adjudged in default shall pay the costs of such action. Civil actions brought under this section to collect contributions or interest thereon shall be heard by the court at the earliest possible date and shall be entitled to preference upon the calendar of the court over all other civil actions.

2. The employer shall pay its contribution from funds available and is directed to pay same from tax money or from any other income of the political subdivision; provided, however, the contributions shall be paid from the same fund as the employee salary.

3. Every political subdivision is hereby authorized and directed to levy a tax sufficient to meet its obligations under the provisions of this chapter if any tax is needed.
