1. If a corporation holding a license issued under this chapter fails for any reason
to file the required returns or to pay the tax due, the president, vice president,
secretary, or treasurer, jointly or severally, having control or supervision of, or
charged with the responsibility for making such returns and payments, is personally
liable for the failure. The dissolution of a corporation does not discharge an officer's liability for a
prior failure of the corporation to make a return or remit the tax due. The sum due for such a liability may be assessed and collected under the provisions
of this chapter for the assessment and collection of other liabilities.
2. If the corporate officers elect not to be personally liable for the failure to
file the required returns or to pay the tax due, the corporation must be required
to make a cash deposit or post with the tax commissioner a bond or undertaking executed
by a surety company authorized to do business in this state. The cash deposit, bond, or undertaking provided for in this section must be in an
amount equal to the estimated annual tobacco products tax liability of the corporation.
