(a) Penalties.--The penalty for bad checks in G.S. 105-236(1) applies to a check offered in payment of the tax imposed by this Article. In addition, if a check offered to the Division in payment of the tax imposed by
this Article is returned unpaid and the tax for which the check was offered, plus
the penalty imposed under G.S. 105-236(1), is not paid within 30 days after the Commissioner demands its payment, the Commissioner
may revoke the registration plate of the vehicle for which a certificate of title
was issued when the check was offered.
(b) Unpaid Taxes.--The remedies for collection of taxes in Article 9 of this Chapter
apply to the taxes levied by this Article and collected by the Commissioner. In applying these remedies, the Commissioner has the same authority as the Secretary.
(c) Appeals.--A taxpayer who disagrees with the presumed value of a motor vehicle
must pay the tax based on the presumed value, but may appeal the value to the Commissioner. A taxpayer who appeals the value must provide two estimates of the value of the
vehicle to the Commissioner. If the Commissioner finds that the value of the vehicle is less than the presumed
value of the vehicle, the Commissioner shall refund any overpayment of tax made by
the taxpayer with interest at the rate specified in G.S. 105-241.21 from the date of the overpayment.
