  143.773.  Penalty for filing incomplete or misleading return — procedure. — 1.  A penalty of not more than five hundred dollars shall be imposed on any individual who files what purports to be an income tax return of the tax imposed under sections 143.011 to 143.996, but which:

  (1)  Does not contain information on which the substantial correctness of the self-assessment may be judged; or

  (2)  Contains information that on its face indicates that the self-assessment is substantially incorrect; and

  (3)  The conduct referred to in subdivision (1) or (2) is intentional and due to a position which is frivolous or a desire (which appears on the purported return) to delay or impede the administration of Missouri tax laws; and

  (4)  The individual has not filed a proper tax return within ninety days (one hundred fifty days if taxpayer is outside the United States) after the date on which notice that the individual's original return otherwise violated subdivisions (1) or (2) and (3) of this subsection was mailed by the director of revenue.

  2.  The penalty imposed by subsection 1 shall be in addition to any other penalty provided by law.

  3.  The director of revenue shall, upon expiration of the time period specified in subdivision (4) of subsection 1, notify the taxpayer by certified mail of the assessment of penalty under the provisions of this section.  The imposition of the penalty is final upon the expiration of thirty days from the date when the director of revenue mails notice to the taxpayer unless within this period the taxpayer seeks review of the assessment by the administrative hearing commission.  The notice of assessment shall inform the taxpayer of his right of review.  The provisions of section 143.661, to the contrary notwithstanding, in any proceeding before the administrative hearing commission or on appeal for a review of the assessment of the penalty imposed pursuant to this section, the burden of proof shall be on the director of revenue.  Notice of the penalty provisions of this section shall be printed upon all Missouri state income tax return forms in a prominent place beginning January 1, 1985.
