SECTION 44-23-9


§ 44-23-9. Assessment and notice of estate tax – Collection powers – Lien.

The tax imposed by § 44-22-1.1 shall be assessed upon the full and fair cash value of the net estate determined by the tax administrator as provided in this chapter. Notice of the amount of the tax shall be mailed to the executor, administrator, or trustee, but failure to receive the notice does not excuse the nonpayment of or invalidate the tax. The tax administrator shall receive and collect the assessed taxes in the same manner and with the same powers as are prescribed for and given to the collectors of taxes by chapters 7 – 9 of this title. The tax shall be due and payable as provided in § 44-23-16, shall be paid to the tax administrator, and shall be and remain a lien upon the estate until it is paid. All executors, administrators, and trustees are personally liable for the tax until it is paid.
