Title X TAXATION AND REVENUE

Chapter 144

previous next Effective - 28 Aug 1982bottom

  144.427.  Taxpayer's agreement to certain conditions to obtain compromise. — 1.  As part of the consideration for compromise of the taxes, the taxpayer shall agree:

  (1)  That the state of Missouri shall keep all payments and other credits made to the accounts for the periods covered by the offer; and

  (2)  That the state of Missouri shall keep any and all amounts to which the taxpayer may otherwise be entitled under the tax laws of this state, due through overpayments of any tax or other liability, including interest and penalties, for periods ending before or within or as of the end of the calendar year in which the offer is accepted (and which are not in excess of the difference between the liability sought to be compromised and the amount offered).

  2.  Payments made under the terms of an offer to compromise shall be applied first to tax and penalty, in that order, due for the earliest taxable period, then to tax and penalty, in that order, for each succeeding taxable period with no amount to be allocated to interest until the liabilities for taxes and penalties for all taxable periods sought to be compromised have been satisfied.

  3.  If an agreement of compromise is reached, the taxpayer shall have no right to contest in court or otherwise the amount of the liability sought to be compromised.  If there is a default in payment of any lump sum amount agreed upon or of any installment of principal or interest due under terms of the agreement of compromise, the state of Missouri, at the option of the attorney general and the director of revenue, may:

  (1)  Proceed immediately by suit to collect the entire unpaid balance of the amount agreed upon; or

  (2)  Proceed immediately by suit to collect as liquidated damages an amount equal to the liability sought to be compromised, minus any deposits already received under the terms of the agreement, with interest on the unpaid balance at the maximum annual rate, from the date of default; or

  (3)  Disregard the amount of the offer and apply all amounts previously deposited under the agreement against the amount of the liability sought to be compromised and, without further notice of any kind, assess and collect by levy or suit the balance of the liability.

  4.  If compromise of delinquent taxes is agreed upon, any statute of limitations applicable to the assessment and collection of the liability sought to be compromised shall be tolled during the period commencing at the time agreement is reached and ending one year after any lump sum payment of the amount agreed upon is due pursuant to the agreement, or one year after the last installment payment of the amount agreed upon is due pursuant to the agreement, as the case may be.
