The security must be in the form and amount the commissioner requires, but not more than twice the retailer's estimated average liability for the period for which the returns are required to be filed, or $10,000, whichever is less. The amount of security may be increased or decreased by the commissioner, subject to the limitations in this section.
Subd. 2. Auctions of security. The commissioner may sell property deposited as security at public auction if necessary to recover the amount required to be collected, including any interest and penalties.

After a sale any surplus above the amount due not required as security under this section must be returned to the person who deposited the security.
