-HEAD-

Sec. 5703. Liability for tax and method of payment

-STATUTE-

(a) Liability for tax

(1) Original liability

The manufacturer or importer of tobacco products and cigarette

papers and tubes shall be liable for the taxes imposed thereon by

section 5701.

(2) Transfer of liability

When tobacco products and cigarette papers and tubes are

transferred, without payment of tax, pursuant to section 5704,

the liability for tax shall be transferred in accordance with the

provisions of this paragraph. When tobacco products and cigarette

papers and tubes are transferred between the bonded premises of

manufacturers and export warehouse proprietors, the transferee

shall become liable for the tax upon receipt by him of such

articles, and the transferor shall thereupon be relieved of his

liability for such tax. When tobacco products and cigarette

papers and tubes are released in bond from customs custody for

transfer to the bonded premises of a manufacturer of tobacco

products or cigarette papers and tubes, the transferee shall

become liable for the tax on such articles upon release from

customs custody, and the importer shall thereupon be relieved of

his liability for such tax. All provisions of this chapter

applicable to tobacco products and cigarette papers and tubes in

bond shall be applicable to such articles returned to bond upon

withdrawal from the market or returned to bond after previous

removal for a tax-exempt purpose.

(b) Method of payment of tax

(1) In general

The taxes imposed by section 5701 shall be determined at the

time of removal of the tobacco products and cigarette papers and

tubes. Such taxes shall be paid on the basis of return. The

Secretary shall, by regulations, prescribe the period or the

event for which such return shall be made and the information to

be furnished on such return. Any postponement under this

subsection of the payment of taxes determined at the time of

removal shall be conditioned upon the filing of such additional

bonds, and upon compliance with such requirements, as the

Secretary may prescribe for the protection of the revenue. The

Secretary may, by regulations, require payment of tax on the

basis of a return prior to removal of the tobacco products and

cigarette papers and tubes where a person defaults in the

postponed payment of tax on the basis of a return under this

subsection or regulations prescribed thereunder. All

administrative and penalty provisions of this title, insofar as

applicable, shall apply to any tax imposed by section 5701.

(2) Time for payment of taxes

(A) In general

Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, in the case

of taxes on tobacco products and cigarette papers and tubes

removed during any semimonthly period under bond for deferred

payment of tax, the last day for payment of such taxes shall be

the 14th day after the last day of such semimonthly period.

(B) Imported articles

In the case of tobacco products and cigarette papers and

tubes which are imported into the United States -

(i) In general

The last day for payment of tax shall be the 14th day after

the last day of the semimonthly period during which the

article is entered into the customs territory of the United

States.

(ii) Special rule for entry for warehousing

Except as provided in clause (iv), in the case of an entry

for warehousing, the last day for payment of tax shall not be

later than the 14th day after the last day of the semimonthly

period during which the article is removed from the 1st such

warehouse.

(iii) Foreign trade zones

Except as provided in clause (iv) and in regulations

prescribed by the Secretary, articles brought into a foreign

trade zone shall, notwithstanding any other provision of law,

be treated for purposes of this subsection as if such zone

were a single customs warehouse.

(iv) Exception for articles destined for export

Clauses (ii) and (iii) shall not apply to any article which

is shown to the satisfaction of the Secretary to be destined

for export.

(C) Tobacco products and cigarette papers and tubes brought

into the United States from Puerto Rico

In the case of tobacco products and cigarette papers and

tubes which are brought into the United States from Puerto

Rico, the last day for payment of tax shall be the 14th day

after the last day of the semimonthly period during which the

article is brought into the United States.

(D) Special rule for tax due in September

(i) In general

Notwithstanding the preceding provisions of this paragraph,

the taxes on tobacco products and cigarette papers and tubes

for the period beginning on September 16 and ending on

September 26 shall be paid not later than September 29.

(ii) Safe harbor

The requirement of clause (i) shall be treated as met if

the amount paid not later than September 29 is not less than

11/15 of the taxes on tobacco products and cigarette papers

and tubes for the period beginning on September 1 and ending

on September 15.

(iii) Taxpayers not required to use electronic funds transfer

In the case of payments not required to be made by

electronic funds transfer, clauses (i) and (ii) shall be

applied by substituting "September 25" for "September 26",

"September 28" for "September 29", and " 2/3 " for " 11/15 ".

(E) Special rule where due date falls on Saturday, Sunday, or

holiday

Notwithstanding section 7503, if, but for this subparagraph,

the due date under this paragraph would fall on a Saturday,

Sunday, or a legal holiday (as defined in section 7503), such

due date shall be the immediately preceding day which is not a

Saturday, Sunday, or such a holiday (or the immediately

following day where the due date described in subparagraph (D)

falls on a Sunday).

(3) Payment by electronic fund transfer

Any person who in any 12-month period, ending December 31, was

liable for a gross amount equal to or exceeding $5,000,000 in

taxes imposed on tobacco products and cigarette papers and tubes

by section 5701 (or 7652) shall pay such taxes during the

succeeding calendar year by electronic fund transfer (as defined

in section 5061(e)(2)) to a Federal Reserve Bank. Rules similar

to the rules of section 5061(e)(3) shall apply to the $5,000,000

amount specified in the preceding sentence.

(c) Use of government depositaries

The Secretary may authorize Federal Reserve banks, and

incorporated banks or trust companies which are depositaries or

financial agents of the United States, to receive any tax imposed

by this chapter, in such manner, at such times, and under such

conditions as he may prescribe; and he shall prescribe the manner,

time, and condition under which the receipt of such tax by such

banks and trust companies is to be treated as payment for tax

purposes.

(d) Assessment

Whenever any tax required to be paid by this chapter is not paid

in full at the time required for such payment, it shall be the duty

of the Secretary, subject to the limitations prescribed in section

6501, on proof satisfactory to him, to determine the amount of tax

which has been omitted to be paid, and to make an assessment

therefor against the person liable for the tax. The tax so assessed

shall be in addition to the penalties imposed by law for failure to

pay such tax when required. Except in cases where delay may

jeopardize collection of the tax, or where the amount is nominal or

the result of an evident mathematical error, no such assessment

shall be made until and after the person liable for the tax has

been afforded reasonable notice and opportunity to show cause, in

writing, against such assessment.
