The director of administrative services shall furnish to the director of budget and management all necessary data for drawing state official and employee pay warrants and preparing earning statements. These data shall include the rate at which paid; the time for which paid, including overtime and any other adjustments affecting the official's or employee's gross pay; all taxes withheld, including, whenever practicable, year-to-date figures on all taxes withheld; the amount of contribution to the appropriate retirement system; any voluntary deductions made in accordance with authorizations filed by the official or employee; and whether a direct deposit is to be made in accordance with an authorization filed by the official or employee.

Amounts deducted from the salaries or wages of all officials and employees shall be transferred to the payroll deduction fund, which is hereby created in the state treasury for the purpose of consolidating all such deductions made in any month. Payments from this fund shall be made at intervals for the intended purpose of the deduction or for refund where it is determined that deductions were made in error.
