If the amount of the tax, interest, and penalty specified in the jeopardy determination is not paid within 10 days after service upon the supplier of notice of the determination, the determination becomes final, unless a petition for redetermination is filed within the 10 days, and the delinquency penalty and interest provided in Article 6 (commencing with Section 7710) shall attach to the amount specified.

(Repealed and added by Stats. 2000, Ch. 1053, Sec. 12. Effective January 1, 2001. Operative January 1, 2002, by Sec. 53 of Ch. 1053.)

The supplier against whom a jeopardy determination is made may petition for the redetermination thereof pursuant to Article 6 (commencing with Section 7710). He or she shall, however, file the petition for redetermination with the board within 10 days after the service upon him or her of notice of the determination. At the time of filing the petition for redetermination, the supplier shall deposit with the board such security as it may deem necessary to ensure compliance with this part.

(Repealed and added by Stats. 2000, Ch. 1053, Sec. 12. Effective January 1, 2001. Operative January 1, 2002, by Sec. 53 of Ch. 1053.)

7700.5.
  

In accordance with these rules and regulations as the board may prescribe, the person against whom a jeopardy determination is made may apply for an administrative hearing for one or more of the following purposes:

(a) To establish that the determination is excessive.

(b) To establish that the sale of property that may be seized after issuance of the jeopardy determination or any part thereof shall be delayed pending the administrative hearing because the sale would result in irreparable injury to the person.

(c) To request the release of all or a part of the property to the person.

(d) To request a stay of collection activities. The application shall be filed within 30 days after service of the notice of jeopardy determination and shall be in writing and state the specific factual and legal grounds upon which it is founded. No security need be posted to file the application and to obtain this hearing. However, if the person does not deposit within the 10-day period prescribed in Section 7700, such security as the board may deem necessary to ensure compliance with this part, the filing of the application shall not operate as a stay of collection activities, except sale of property seized after issuance of the jeopardy determination. Upon a showing of good cause for failure to file a timely application for administrative hearing, the board may allow a filing of the application and grant the person an administrative hearing. The filing of an application pursuant to this section shall not affect provisions of Section 7699 relating to the finality date of the determination or to penalty or interest.

The return shall be accompanied by a remittance payable to the Controller for the amount of tax due for the period covered.
