Chapter 143

< > Effective - 28 Aug 1978    bottom

  143.891.  Jeopardy assessments. — 1.  If the director of revenue finds that the assessment or the collection of a tax or a deficiency for any year, current or past, will be jeopardized in whole or in part by delay, he may mail or issue notice of his finding to the taxpayer, together with a demand for immediate payment of the tax or the deficiency declared to be in jeopardy, including additions to tax, interest, and penalties.

  2.  In the case of a tax for a current period, the director of revenue shall declare the taxable period of the taxpayer immediately terminated and his notice and demand for a return and immediate payment of the tax shall relate to the period declared terminated, including therein income accrued and deductions incurred up to the date of termination if not otherwise properly includable or deductible in respect of the period.

  3.  A jeopardy assessment is immediately due and payable, and proceedings for collection may be commenced at once.  The taxpayer, however, may stay collection and prevent the jeopardy assessment from becoming final by filing, within ten days after the date of mailing or issuing the notice of jeopardy assessment, a request for reassessment, accompanied by a bond or other security in the amount of the assessment including additions to tax, penalties, and interest as to which the stay of collection is sought.  If a request for reassessment, accompanied by a bond or other security in the appropriate amount, is not filed within the ten-day period, the assessment becomes final.

  4.  If a request for reassessment, accompanied by a bond or other security, is filed within a ten-day period, the director of revenue shall reconsider the assessment.  The director of revenue's action on the request for reassessment becomes final upon the expiration of thirty days from the date when he mails notice of his action to the taxpayer, unless within that thirty-day period the taxpayer files an application to seek review of the director of revenue's determination by the administrative hearing commission.

  5.  The director of revenue may abate the jeopardy assessment if he finds that jeopardy does not exist.
