(a) An employer may apply to the commission or the commission may on its own motion provide for an adjustment of contributions or interest or for a refund if the adjustment cannot be made. This subsection applies only to payments made within three (3) years before the date of application or determination. Upon determination of an erroneous collection, the department shall grant an adjustment without interest for future contribution payments or if the adjustment cannot be made, refund the amount without interest from the fund.
(b) The department may upon its own motion or written application reduce or waive the amount of interest due under W.S. 27-3-510(a) if the collection of the full amount of interest is against equity and good conscience. If an employer is no longer subject to this act pursuant to W.S. 27-3-502, the department may reduce or cancel the amount of contributions or interest due upon a determination based on findings entered into the record that the employer is:
(i) Adjudicated insolvent by a court of competent jurisdiction with no remaining assets;
(ii) Deceased with no estate or the estate is closed and all assets are distributed;
(iii) A dissolved corporation with no remaining assets;
(iv) Not found within three (3) years after the date of termination of coverage under this act and has no property located in the state; or
(v) Not capable of paying the total amount due within three (3) years after the date of termination of coverage under this act, has no property in the state and failure to accept a partial amount of the total as settlement may result in a substantial loss to the fund.
(c) Subsection (b) of this section does not prevent the department from collecting the balance of interest and contributions not paid if its action was based upon a misrepresentation or omission of facts or if amounts due under this act are collectible at a future date.
