ARTICLE 3. Determinations

(Article 3 added by Stats. 1961, Ch. 884.)

30173. If a distributor fails to make payment for stamps or meter register settings when payment is due, the board may compute and determine from any available records and information the amount required to be paid, including interest and penalties. One or more determinations may be made of the amount due for one or for more than one purchase. In making a determination the board may offset overpayments with respect to purchases of stamps or meter register settings against underpayments for purchases and interest and penalties on the underpayments. The board shall give the distributor written notice of its determination in the manner provided by Section 30206. Except in the case of fraud, every notice of a determination made under this article shall be given within three years of the due date for payment of the purchase of stamps or a meter register setting.
History.—Added by Stats. 1961, p. 2317, operative July 16, 1961

30174. If the amount specified in the determination made under this article is not paid within 10 days after service of the notice upon the distributor, the determination becomes final unless a petition for redetermination is filed with the board within the 10-day period. The determination is due and payable when it becomes final and the amounts determined, exclusive of interest and penalties, shall bear interest at the rate prescribed by Section 30171.
History.—Added by Stats. 1961, p. 2317, operative July 16, 1961

30175. The distributor against whom a determination is made under this article may petition for the redetermination thereof pursuant to Article 5 (commencing with Section 30241) of Chapter 4. He or she shall, however, file the petition for redetermination within the time prescribed by Section 30174 and shall, at the time of filing the petition, deposit with the board such security as it may deem necessary to insure compliance with this part. The security may be sold in the same manner as prescribed by Section 30243.
History.—Added by Stats. 1961, p. 2317, operative July 16, 1961. Stats. 1982, Ch. 454, in effect January 1, 1983, added "(commencing with Section 30241)" after "Article 5" and deleted "of this part" after "Chapter 4" in the first sentence, and added "or she" after "He" and placed commas around the phrase "at the time of filing the petition" in the second sentence
