      Sec. 12-555. Deposit of security to insure compliance. The commissioner, whenever he deems it necessary to insure compliance with this chapter, may require any person subject thereto to deposit with him such security as the commissioner determines. The amount of the security shall be fixed by the commissioner but shall not be greater than six times the person's estimated average liability for the period for which he files returns, determined in such manner as the commissioner deems proper. The amount of the security may be increased or decreased by the commissioner subject to the limitations herein provided. The commissioner may sell the security at public auction if it becomes necessary so to do in order to recover any tax or any amount required to be collected, or any interest or penalty due. Notice of the sale may be served upon the person who deposited the security personally or by mail. If by mail, service shall be made in the manner prescribed for service of a notice of a deficiency assessment and shall be addressed to the person at his address as it appears in the records of the commissioner's office. Security in the form of a bearer bond, issued by the United States or the state of Connecticut, which has a prevailing market price may, however, be sold by the commissioner at private sale at a price not lower than the prevailing market price thereof. Upon any sale any surplus above the amounts due shall be returned to the person who deposited the security.

      (1971, P.A. 837, S. 18; P.A. 82-36, S. 2, 3; P.A. 91-127, S. 2.)

      History: P.A. 82-36 increased the maximum security that may be required to insure compliance with requirements under the admissions, cabaret and dues tax, which maximum security prior to P.A. 82-36 was two times the taxpayer's estimated average liability or $10,000, whichever is less, by raising $10,000 to $100,000; P.A. 91-127 increased the multiplier for the required security from twice the average liability to six times and removed the upper limit of $100,000.
