SECTION 42-7.4-6

§ 42-7.4-6. Assessment on available information – Interest on delinquencies – Penalties – Collection powers.

If any insurer shall fail to file a return within the time required by this chapter, or shall file an insufficient or incorrect return, or shall not pay the contribution imposed by this section when it is due, the secretary shall assess the contribution upon the information as may be available, which shall be payable upon demand and shall bear interest at the annual rate provided by § 44-1-7, from the date when the contribution should have been paid. If the failure is due, in whole or part, to negligence or intentional disregard of the provisions of this section, a penalty of ten percent (10%) of the amount of the determination shall be added to the contribution. The secretary shall collect the contribution with interest. The secretary may request any agency to assist in collection, including the tax administrator, who may collect the contribution with interest in the same manner and with the same powers as are prescribed for collection of taxes in title 44.
