If the limited liability company fails to timely file the agreements on behalf of each of its nonresident members, then the limited liability company shall, at the time set forth in subdivision (f), pay to this state on behalf of each nonresident member of whom an agreement has not been timely filed an amount equal to the highest marginal tax rate in effect under Section 17041, in the case of members that are individuals, estates, or trusts, and Section 23151, in the case of members that are corporations, multiplied by the amount of the member’s distributive share of the income source to the state reflected on the limited liability company’s return for the taxable period, reduced by the amount of tax previously withheld and paid by the limited liability company pursuant to Section 18662 and the regulations thereunder with respect to each nonresident member.

(2) If the owner’s consent required under paragraph (1) is not included, the limited liability company shall pay on behalf of its owner an amount consistent with, and treated the same as, the amount to be paid under subdivision (e) by a limited liability company on behalf of a nonresident member for whom an agreement required by subdivision (e) is not attached to the return of the limited liability company.

(3) (A) Except as provided in subparagraph (B), the return required under paragraph (1) shall be filed on or before the 15th day of the fourth month after the close of the taxable year of the owner subject to tax under Part 10 (commencing with Section 17001) or Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 23101) of Part 11.
