When the tax provided for in this chapter becomes delinquent, there is hereby imposed
a penalty of five dollars, or a sum equal to five percent of the tax due, whichever
is greater, with interest at the rate of one percent per month on the tax due, for
each calendar month or fraction thereof during which such delinquency continues, excepting
the month within which such tax became due, which must be collected in the manner
hereinafter provided. If any person fails to make any report herein required, within the time prescribed
by law for such report, it is the duty of the commissioner to examine the books, records,
and files of such person to ascertain the amount and value of such production to compute
the tax thereon as provided herein, and the commissioner shall add thereto the amount
of any penalties accrued thereon. The commissioner, for good cause shown, may waive the penalty or the interest provided
by this section.
