Property Tax Annotations
170.0068 Penalty Assessments. In making penalty assessments, assessors should apply the penalty provided by statute at the time the assessment is made, even though the incorrect assessment was made at a time prior to enactment of the statutory penalty applicable at the time of the escape assessment. Tax penalties are civil in nature and do not involve the criminal law principle of ex post facto. C 9/26/1996.
