70-3-3. Investigation and referral procedure
The Business Tax Division of the Oklahoma Tax Commission, upon receipt of the complaint described in 710:70-3-2, shall make a determination as to whether or not a probable violation of the provisions of the Unfair Cigarette and Tobacco Products Sales Act (68 O.S. §§326 et seq.) (the Act) appears to have occurred and shall forward such to the office of the General Counsel of the Oklahoma Tax Commission together with evidence of the relevant basic cost of cigarette and tobacco products and other relevant information in its possession. The General Counsel shall review the complaint and determine whether there exists a prima facie case of violation or failure to comply and, if so, shall issue a notice to the alleged violator to attend a hearing where the alleged violator's license may be cancelled or suspended. A hearing shall be set after giving the complaining party and the person or entity who has allegedly violated the Act at least ten (10) days notice and a copy of this Subchapter shall be available at the Oklahoma Tax Commission for all affected parties and may be mailed to such parties with the notice. If the General Counsel determines that the violation warrants additional action, an action may be instituted in any court of competent jurisdiction and the rules of the court shall apply.
