Office of the Revisor of Statutes

Notwithstanding any other provisions of law to the contrary, the attorney general shall have
authority to compromise taxes, fees, surcharges, assessments, penalties, and interest in all cases,
whether reduced to judgment or not, where the debt is being reduced by an amount exceeding
$50,000 and, in the attorney general's opinion, it shall be in the best interests of the state to do so.
Such a compromise must be in a form prescribed by the attorney general and shall be in writing
signed by the attorney general, the taxpayer or taxpayer's representative, and the commissioner of
revenue. Compromises of such debts in cases where the debt is being reduced by an amount of
$50,000 or less are governed by section 16D.15.
