             1123      delinquent employer; and
             1124          (ii) become a lien upon the real property of the delinquent employer or claimant in the
             1125      same manner and to the same extent as a judgment duly rendered by a district court and

             1131      collected in the same manner.
             1132          (6) (a) Contributions imposed by this chapter are a lien upon the property of an
             1133      employer liable for the contribution required to be collected under this section who shall sell
             1134      out the employer's business or stock of goods or shall quit business, if the employer fails to
             1135      make a final report and payment on the date subsequent to the date of selling or quitting
             1136      business on which they are due and payable as prescribed by rule.
             1137          (b) (i) An employer's successor, successors, or assigns, if any, are required to withhold
             1138      sufficient of the purchase money to cover the amount of the contributions and interest or
             1139      penalties due and payable until the former owner produces a receipt from the division showing
             1140      that they have been paid or a certificate stating that no amount is due.
             1141          (ii) If the purchaser of a business or stock of goods fails to withhold sufficient
             1142      purchase money, the purchaser is personally liable for the payment of the amount of the
             1143      contributions required to be paid by the former owner, interest and penalties accrued and
             1144      unpaid by the former owner, owners, or assignors.
             1145          (7) (a) If an employer is delinquent in the payment of a contribution, the division may
             1146      give notice of the amount of the delinquency by registered mail to all persons having in their
             1147      possession or under their control, any credits or other personal property belonging to the
             1148      employer, or owing any debts to the employer at the time of the receipt by them of the notice.
             1149          (b) A person notified under Subsection (7)(a) shall neither transfer nor make any other


             1150      disposition of the credits, other personal property, or debts until:
             1151          (i) the division has consented to a transfer or disposition; or
             1152          (ii) 20 days after the receipt of the notice.
             1153          (c) All persons notified under Subsection (7)(a) shall, within five days after receipt of
             1154      the notice, advise the division of credits, other personal property, or other debts in their
             1155      possession, under their control or owing by them, as the case may be.
             1156          (8) (a) (i) Each employer shall furnish the division necessary information for the
             1157      proper administration of this chapter and shall include wage information for each employee,
             1158      for each calendar quarter.
             1159          (ii) The information shall be furnished at a time, in the form, and to those individuals
             1160      as the department may by rule require.
             1161          (b) (i) Each employer shall furnish each individual worker who is separated that
             1162      information as the department may by rule require, and shall furnish within 48 hours of the

             1164      individual's base-period.
             1165          (ii) The report shall be on a form prescribed by the division and contain all
             1166      information prescribed by the division.
             1167          (c) (i) For each failure by an employer to conform to this Subsection (8) the division
             1168      shall, unless good cause is shown, assess a $50 penalty if the filing was not more than 15 days
             1169      late.
             1170          (ii) If the filing is more than 15 days late, the division shall assess an additional
             1171      penalty of $50 for each 15 days, or a fraction of the 15 days that the filing is late, not to exceed
             1172      $250 per filing.
             1173          (iii) The penalty is to be collected in the same manner as contributions due under this
             1174      chapter.
             1175          (d) (i) The division shall prescribe rules providing standards for determining which

             1177      machine-readable form.


             1178          (ii) In prescribing these rules, the division:
             1179          (A) may not require an employer to file contribution reports on magnetic or electronic
             1180      media unless the employer is required to file wage data on at least 250 employees during any
             1181      calendar quarter or is an authorized employer representative who files quarterly tax reports on
             1182      behalf of 100 or more employers during any calendar quarter;
             1183          (B) shall take into account, among other relevant factors, the ability of the employer to
             1184      comply at reasonable cost with the requirements of the rules; and
             1185          (C) may require an employer to post a bond for failure to comply with the rules
             1186      required by this Subsection (8)(d).
             1187          (9) (a) (i) An employer liable for payments in lieu of contributions shall file
             1188      Reimbursable Employment and Wage Reports.
             1189          (ii) The reports are due on the last day of the month that follows the end of each
             1190      calendar quarter unless the division, after giving notice, changes the due date.
             1191          (iii) A report postmarked on or before the due date is considered timely.
             1192          (b) (i) Unless the employer can show good cause, the division shall assess a $50

             1195          (ii) If the filing is more than 15 days late, the division shall assess an additional
             1196      penalty of $50 for each 15 days, or a fraction of the 15 days that the filing is late, not to exceed
             1197      $250 per filing.
             1198          (iii) The division shall assess and collect the penalties referred to in this Subsection
             1199      (9)(b) in the same manner as prescribed in Sections 35A-4-309 and 35A-4-311 .
             1200          (10) If a person liable to pay a contribution or benefit overpayment imposed by this
             1201      chapter neglects or refuses to pay it after demand, the amount, including any interest,
             1202      additional amount, addition to contributions, or assessable penalty, together with any
             1203      additional accruable costs, shall be a lien in favor of the division upon all property and rights
             1204      to property, whether real or personal belonging to the person.
             1205          (11) (a) The lien imposed by Subsection (10) arises at the time the assessment, as


             1206      defined in the department rules, is made and continues until the liability for the amount
             1207      assessed, or a judgment against the taxpayer arising out of the liability, is satisfied.
             1208          (b) (i) The lien imposed by Subsection (10) is not valid as against a purchaser, holder
             1209      of a security interest, mechanics' lien holder, or judgment lien creditor until the division files a
             1210      warrant with the clerk of the district court.
             1211          (ii) For the purposes of this Subsection (11)(b):
             1212          (A) "Judgment lien creditor" means a person who obtains a valid judgment of a court
             1213      of record for recovery of specific property or a sum certain of money, and who in the case of a
             1214      recovery of money, has a perfected lien under the judgment on the property involved. A
             1215      judgment lien does not include inchoate liens such as attachment or garnishment liens until
             1216      they ripen into a judgment. A judgment lien does not include the determination or assessment
             1217      of a quasi-judicial authority, such as a state or federal taxing authority.
             1218          (B) "Mechanics' lien holder" means any person who has a lien on real property, or on
             1219      the proceeds of a contract relating to real property, for services, labor, or materials furnished in
             1220      connection with the construction or improvement of the property. A person has a lien on the
             1221      earliest date the lien becomes valid against subsequent purchasers without actual notice, but
             1222      not before the person begins to furnish the services, labor, or materials.
             1223          (C) "Person" means:
             1224          (I) an individual;
             1225          (II) a trust;
             1226          (III) an estate;
             1227          (IV) a partnership;
             1228          (V) an association;
             1229          (VI) a company;
             1230          (VII) a limited liability company;
             1231          (VIII) a limited liability partnership; or
             1232          (IX) a corporation.
             1233          (D) "Purchaser" means a person who, for adequate and full consideration in money or


             1234      money's worth, acquires an interest, other than a lien or security interest, in property which is
             1235      valid under state law against subsequent purchasers without actual notice.
             1236          (E) "Security interest" means any interest in property acquired by contract for the
             1237      purpose of securing payment or performance of an obligation or indemnifying against loss or
             1238      liability. A security interest exists at any time:
             1239          (I) the property is in existence and the interest has become protected under the law
             1240      against a subsequent judgment lien arising out of an unsecured obligation; and
             1241          (II) to the extent that, at that time, the holder has parted with money or money's worth.
             1242          Section 28. Section 35A-4-306 is amended to read:
             1243           35A-4-306. Charging benefit costs to employer.
             1244          (1) Benefit costs of former workers of an employer will be charged to the employer in
             1245      the same proportion as the wages paid by that employer in the base period bear to the total
             1246      wages of all employers of that worker in the base period, calculated to the nearest five decimal
             1247      places.
             1248          (2) Notification by the division that a worker has filed an initial claim for
             1249      unemployment insurance benefits will be sent to all base-period employers and all subsequent
             1250      employers prior to the payment of benefits. Any employing unit that receives a notice of the
             1251      filing of a claim may protest payment of benefits to former employees or charges to the
             1252      employer if the protest is filed within 10 days after the date the notice is issued.
             1253          (3) On or before November 1 of each year beginning November 1, 1984, each
             1254      employer shall receive notification of all benefit costs of former workers that have been
             1255      charged to that employer in the immediately preceding fiscal year. Any employing unit that
             1256      receives a notice of benefit charges may protest the correctness of the charges if the protest is
             1257      filed within 30 days after the date the notice is issued.
             1258          (4) On written request made by an employer, corrections or modifications of the
             1259      employer's wages shall be taken into account for the purpose of redetermining the employer's
             1260      contribution rate. The request shall be made to the division no later than the end of the
             1261      calendar year following the year for which the contribution rate is assigned. The division may,


             1262      within a like period upon its own initiative, redetermine an employer's contribution rate.
             1263          (5) (a) If no later than three years after the date on which any contributions or interest
             1264      or penalty for contributions were due, an employer who has paid the contributions, interest, or
             1265      penalty may make application for an adjustment in connection with subsequent contribution
             1266      payments, or for a refund because the adjustment cannot be made, and the division shall
             1267      determine that the contributions or interest or penalty or any portion thereof was erroneously
             1268      collected, the division shall allow the employer to make an adjustment, without interest, in
             1269      connection with subsequent contribution payments by the employer, or if the adjustment
             1270      cannot be made, the division shall refund that amount, without interest.
             1271          (b) Refunds of contributions shall be made from the clearing account or the benefit
             1272      account in the fund, and refunds of interest and penalty shall be made from the Special
             1273      Administrative Expense [fund] Account or from the interest and penalty moneys in the
             1274      clearing account of the fund.
             1275          (c) For like cause and within the same period, an adjustment or refund may be made
             1276      on the division's own initiative.
             1277          (d) Decisions with respect to applications for refund are final unless the employing
             1278      unit, within 10 days after the mailing or personal delivery of notice of the decision, applies to
             1279      the division for a review of the decision as provided in Section 35A-4-508 .
             1280          Section 29. Section 35A-4-501 is amended to read:
             1281           35A-4-501. Unemployment Compensation Fund -- Administration -- Contents --
             1282      Treasurer and custodian -- Separate accounts -- Use of money requisitioned -- Advances
             1283      under Social Security Act.
             1284          (1) There is established the Unemployment Compensation Fund, separate and apart
             1285      from all public moneys or funds of this state, that shall be administered by the department
             1286      exclusively for the purposes of this chapter. This fund shall consist of the following moneys,
             1287      all of which shall be mingled and undivided:
             1288          (a) all contributions collected under this chapter, less refunds of contributions made
             1289      from the clearing account under Subsection 35A-4-306 (5);


             1290          (b) interest earned upon any moneys in the fund;
             1291          (c) any property or securities acquired through the use of moneys belonging to the

             1300      the department. The division shall maintain within the fund three separate accounts:
             1301          (i) a clearing account;

             1304          (b) All moneys payable to the fund, upon receipt by the division, shall be immediately
             1305      deposited in the clearing account.
             1306          (c) (i) All moneys in the clearing account after clearance shall, except as otherwise
             1307      provided in this section, be deposited immediately with the secretary of the treasury of the
             1308      United States of America to the credit of the account of this state in the unemployment trust
             1309      fund, established and maintained under Section 904 of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C.
             1310      1104, as amended, any provisions of law in this state relating to the deposit, administration,
             1311      release, or disbursement of moneys in the possession or custody of this state to the contrary
             1312      notwithstanding.
             1313          (ii) Refunds of contributions payable under Subsections 35A-4-205 (1)(a) and
             1314      35A-4-306 (5) may be paid from the clearing account or the benefit account.
             1315          (d) The benefit account shall consist of all moneys requisitioned from this state's
             1316      account in the unemployment trust fund in the United States treasury.
             1317          (e) Moneys in the clearing and benefit accounts may be deposited in any depository


             1318      bank in which general funds of this state may be deposited, but no public deposit insurance

             1320          (f) (i) Moneys in the clearing and benefit accounts may not be commingled with other
             1321      state funds, but shall be maintained in separate accounts on the books of the depository bank.

             1323      same manner as required by the general depository law of this state.
             1324          (iii) Collateral pledged for this purpose shall be kept separate and distinct from any
             1325      collateral pledged to secure other funds of the state.

             1329          (ii) The liability on the official bond shall be effective immediately upon the
             1330      enactment of this provision, and that liability shall exist in addition to the liability upon any

             1337          (ii) The department shall from time to time requisition from the unemployment trust
             1338      fund amounts, not exceeding the amounts standing to this state's account in the fund, as it

             1340      period.
             1341          (iii) (A) Upon receipt the treasurer shall deposit the moneys in the benefit account and
             1342      shall pay benefits and refunds from the account by means of warrants issued by the division in
             1343      accordance with rules prescribed by the department.
             1344          (B) Expenditures of these moneys in the benefit account and refunds from the clearing
             1345      account are not subject to any provisions of law requiring specific appropriations or other


             1346      formal release by state officers of money in their custody.
             1347          (b) Moneys in the state's account in the unemployment trust fund that were collected

             1349      under Section 903 of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., as amended may be
             1350      requisitioned from the state's account and used in the payment of expenses incurred by the
             1351      department for the administration of the state's unemployment law and public employment
             1352      offices, if the expenses are incurred and the withdrawals are made only after and under a
             1353      specific appropriation of the Legislature that specifies:
             1354          (i) the purposes and amounts;
             1355          (ii) that the moneys may not be obligated after the two-year period that began on the
             1356      date of the enactment of the appropriation law; and
             1357          (iii) that the total amount which may be used during a fiscal year shall not exceed the
             1358      amount by which the aggregate of the amounts credited to this state's account under Section

             1360      the 34 preceding fiscal years, exceeds the aggregate of the amounts used by this state for
             1361      administration during the same 35 fiscal years.
             1362          (A) For the purpose of Subsection (3)(b)(iii), amounts used during any fiscal year shall
             1363      be charged against equivalent amounts that were first credited and that have not previously
             1364      been so charged. An amount used during any fiscal year may not be charged against any
             1365      amount credited during a fiscal year earlier than the 34th preceding fiscal year.
             1366          (B) Except as appropriated and used for administrative expenses, as provided in this
             1367      section, moneys transferred to this state under Section 903 of the Social Security Act as
             1368      amended, may be used only for the payment of benefits.

             1378      expenditure, and return of funds deposited.

             1380      and, if not expended, shall be returned promptly to the account of this state in the
             1381      unemployment trust fund.
             1382          (G) The moneys available by reason of this legislative appropriation shall not be
             1383      expended or available for expenditure in any manner that would permit their substitution for,
             1384      or a corresponding reduction in, federal funds that would in the absence of the moneys be
             1385      available to finance expenditures for the administration of this chapter.
             1386          (c) Any balance of moneys requisitioned from the unemployment trust fund that
             1387      remains unclaimed or unpaid in the benefit account after the expiration of the period for which
             1388      the sums were requisitioned shall either be deducted from estimates for, and may be utilized
             1389      for the payment of, benefits and refunds during succeeding periods, or in the discretion of the
             1390      division, shall be redeposited with the secretary of the treasury of the United States of America
             1391      to the credit of the state's account in the unemployment trust fund, as provided in Subsection
             1392      (2).
             1393          (4) (a) The provisions of Subsections (1), (2), and (3), to the extent that they relate to
             1394      the unemployment trust fund, shall be operative only so long as the unemployment trust fund
             1395      continues to exist and so long as the secretary of the treasury of the United States of America
             1396      continues to maintain for the state a separate book account of all moneys deposited in the fund
