Sec. § 70353


Each county shall remit the county facilities payment determined by this article to the Controller, for deposit into the Court Facilities Trust Fund. One-quarter of each county’s facilities payment shall be remitted to the Controller quarterly on October 1, January 1, April 1, and July 1. Any payment that is not made when required by this subdivision shall be considered delinquent, and subject to the penalties specified in subdivision (b).


Upon receipt of any delinquent payment required pursuant to this section, the Controller shall calculate a penalty on any delinquent payment by multiplying the amount of the delinquent payment at a daily rate equivalent to 112 percent per month for the number of days the payment is delinquent. Penalty amounts calculated pursuant to this subdivision shall be paid by the county to the Court Facilities Trust Fund no later than 45 days after the end of the month in which the penalty was calculated.


The Judicial Council shall provide the Controller with a schedule of the county facility payments at the beginning of each fiscal year. If the amount of the county facility payment changes pursuant to this article, the Judicial Council shall provide the Controller with a new schedule of payments within 30 days of the change.
