867. Collector authorized to waive forfeiture proceedings in certain cases
Jurisdiction is conferred upon the collector to waive any proceedings for the forfeiture of the seized taxable articles or any part thereof when he finds that the violation of the law, for which the goods were seized, was unintentional or without intention to defraud the state of its revenue, provided that the offender first affixes to all of the seized taxable articles twice the amount and value of the stamps necessary to represent the tax, and cancels the same. The collector may make a compromise with any claimant, before or after the claim is filed in court. A record of all such compromises and waivers of forfeiture shall be kept by the collector and shall be open to public inspection.
