§ 1074. Administration of Fees and Expenses.
(a) Annual fees shall be imposed based on the fiscal year (July 1 through June 30). Annual fees shall be based on the regulations in effect at the time of assessment. Except as otherwise provided in section 1062, subdivision (b) and section 1064, subdivision (b), filing fees shall be based on the regulations in effect at the time of filing. All references in this chapter to the beginning of the year or to circumstances occurring during the year shall be construed to refer to the fiscal year.
(b) Except as provided in this subdivision, if the circumstances establishing a requirement for payment of an annual fee occur during a year, the entire annual fee shall be imposed for that year, even if those circumstances occur for only a portion of the year. The board may decide not to assess an annual fee if a permittee or licensee requests revocation of the permit or license before the annual fee is assessed and the board determines that revocation likely would be appropriate.
(c) If the identity of a fee payer changes before an assessment is issued, the previous fee payer remains responsible for payment of the assessment, unless the fee payer notifies the board of the name and address of the new fee payer at least 10 days before the assessment is issued. The notice must comply with section 831 of this division, if applicable.
(d) An annual fee shall be due and payable thirty days after the State Board of Equalization issues an assessment.
(e) Expenses and unpaid fees are due on the date that they should have been paid to the board.
(f) Whenever, while acting within the scope of its authority under chapter 8 (commencing with section 1525), part 2, division 2 of the Water Code, the board notifies the State Board of Equalization of an assessment, decision on a petition for reconsideration, decision on a claim for refund, cancellation, or adjustment, the State Board of Equalization shall, without further review, collect, refund, cancel or adjust the assessment or other amount in accordance with the instructions of the board.
(g) If a fee payer files a petition for reconsideration of an assessment with the board pursuant to section 1077 or section 1078 of this chapter, then the fee payer may either (i) timely pay the assessment to the State Board of Equalization and include a request for refund in the petition for reconsideration filed with the board or (ii) postpone payment of the assessment while the petition for reconsideration is pending.
(1) If payment of the assessment is postponed until the board decides the petition for reconsideration, interest will continue to accrue from the date the assessment was initially due at the rate specified in Revenue and Taxation Code section 55042.
(2) The board shall promptly notify the State Board of Equalization of its decision on a petition for reconsideration.
(3) Any amount to be refunded or cancelled shall be credited by the State Board of Equalization on any amounts then due from the person from whom the amount to be refunded or cancelled was collected or by whom it was paid, and the balance shall be refunded to the person, or his or her successors, administrator, or executors.
(h) If the board denies the petition for reconsideration in whole or in part, then the assessment shall become final for purposes of the Fee Collection Procedures Law, part 30 (commencing with section 55001) of division 2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, thirty days after the State Board of Equalization issues a reassessment implementing the board's decision. Interest shall be due from the date that the assessment was originally due and penalties shall accrue commencing on the date that the reassessment becomes final for purposes of the Fee Collection Procedures Law. This paragraph does not affect the deadline for filing a petition for writ of mandate under section 1126 of the Water Code. For purposes of section 1126 of the Water Code, the board's order or decision on a petition for reconsideration is final on the date that the board issues the order or decision.
(i) Thirty-one days following the date of assessment or reassessment by the State Board of Equalization, amounts assessed by the State Board of Equalization that were not the subject of a timely petition for reconsideration by the board, and amounts that were the subject of a timely petition for reconsideration that have been decided by the board to be owing, shall be treated as final liabilities under the Fee Collection Procedures Law.
(j) A person may not maintain a suit in any court for the recovery of a fee assessed by the State Board of Equalization unless the person has filed a petition for reconsideration in accordance with this chapter and has either paid the fee in accordance with subdivision (d) or pays the fee within 30 days of the issuance of a reassessment of the fee pursuant to subdivision (h). The petition and payment of the fee in accordance with this subdivision constitute a claim for refund within the meaning of section 55242 of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
