6565. Due date of determination; penalty. All determinations made by the board under Articles 2 or 3 of this chapter are due and payable at the time they become final. If they are not paid when due and payable, a penalty of 10 percent of the amount of the determination, exclusive of interest and penalties, shall be added thereto.

Penalty when retailer bankrupt.—Since a tax and penalty computed in accordance with Section 6511 for periods prior to commencement of bankruptcy proceedings could not be paid by a receiver in bankruptcy, the amount added as a penalty for the receiver's failure to pay is not allowable as a claim in bankruptcy.
