55101.
  

If the board believes that the collection of any amount of the fee will be jeopardized by delay, it shall thereupon make a determination of the amount of the fee due, noting that fact upon the determination, and the amount of the fee shall be immediately due and payable. If the amount of the fee, interest, and penalty specified in the jeopardy determination is not paid, or a petition for redetermination is not filed, within 10 days after the service upon the feepayer of notice of determination, the determination becomes final, and the delinquency penalty and interest provided in Section 55042 shall be attached to the amount of the fee specified therein.

(Amended by Stats. 2004, Ch. 527, Sec. 13. Effective January 1, 2005.)

55102.
  

The feepayer against whom a jeopardy determination is made may file a petition for redetermination thereof, pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 55081), with the board within 10 days after the service upon the feepayer of notice of the determination, but he or she shall, within the 10-day period, deposit with the board any security that it deems necessary to ensure compliance with the provisions of this part. The security may be sold by the board at public sale if it becomes necessary to do so in order to recover any amount due under this part. Notice of the sale may be served upon the person who deposited the security personally or by mail in the same manner as prescribed for service of notice by Section 55061. Upon any such sale, the surplus, if any, above the amount due under this part shall be returned to the person who deposited the security.

(Added by Stats. 1992, Ch. 407, Sec. 1. Effective January 1, 1993.)

55103.
  

In accordance with any rules and regulations that 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 legal grounds upon which it is founded. The person shall not be required to post any security in order to file the application and to obtain the hearing. However, if the person does not deposit, within the 10-day period prescribed in Section 55102, the security that the board deems necessary to ensure compliance with this part, the filing of the application shall not operate as a stay of collection activities, except the sale of property seized after issuance of the jeopardy determination. Upon a showing of good cause for failure to file a timely application for an 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 the provisions of Section 55101 relating to the finality date of the determination or to penalty and interest.

(Added by Stats. 1992, Ch. 407, Sec. 1. Effective January 1, 1993.)
