42-1103.03. Suspension from electronic filing program

A. The department may suspend an electronic return preparer from participating in the electronic filing program if the department determines that the electronic return preparer has failed to comply with any of the department's electronic filing program requirements, including requirements that are set forth in rules, manuals, rulings or procedures prescribed by the department for the program.

B. Within one hundred eighty days of the mailing date of the notice of suspension from the electronic filing program, the electronic return preparer may petition the department to review the action taken pursuant to section 42-1251. The petition shall set forth the reasons why the suspension should be lifted. Within fifteen days after the request for review, the department shall determine whether the suspension should be lifted.

C. Within thirty days after the department notifies the electronic return preparer of the determination under subsection B of this section, the electronic return preparer may bring a civil action in tax court for a determination under this subsection. Within twenty days after service of process is made on the department, the tax court shall determine whether the suspension should be lifted. If the electronic return preparer requests an extension of the twenty day period and establishes reasonable grounds why an extension should be granted, the court may grant an extension of not more than forty additional days. A determination made by the tax court under this subsection is final except as provided in section 12-170, subsection C.
