In August, the City of Atlanta Finance Department was required to make a $81,912 late payment to the State’s Subsequent Injury Trust Fund (SITF) which is part of the worker’s compensation system for the State of Georgia. The annual return and payment are normally due on March 1st, so August was late. In investigating the late fee with the State officials it was discovered that the notice was never received by the City and was returned unopened to the State. Based on this factor, the SITF Administrator agreed with the City Chief Financial Officer, Jim Glass, that these circumstances did not warrant the late penalty . The refund for this payment was returned to the City on September 9th.
