S1213: ASRS; RETURN TO WORK (TAX CREDITS; AFFORDABLE HOUSING) Questions/Comments

An Arizona State Retirement System (ASRS) employer is not required to pay contributions at an alternate contribution rate on behalf of a retired member that returns to work with the employer in a position that is currently filled by an employee who is an active ASRS member and for which the employer is currently required to pay and is paying contributions on behalf of the active member in that same position. An ASRS employer is permitted to pay contributions at an alternate contribution rate for a retired member who meets the requirements for an exemption. For contributions made beginning July 1, 2019, if ASRS and the employer determine that the "alternative" contribution rate does not apply to a member for whom the employer has paid contributions at the alternate contribution rate, the employer is permitted to request an employer credit, not including interest, for those contributions within 90 days after the end of the fiscal year in which the contributions were paid. If ASRS determines that an employer credit is not feasible, ASRS is required to issue a refund to an employer in a form determined by ASRS. AS PASSED SENATE.
