California Laws | Revenue and Taxation Code

13830.9. The reasonable compensation and expenses of the members of the board and its employees shall be agreed upon among those members, the taxing officials involved, and the executors. If an agreement cannot be reached, compensation and expenses shall be determined by those taxing officials; and, if they cannot agree, by the appropriate probate court of the state determined to be the domicile. That amount shall be borne by the estate and shall be deemed an administration expense. (11865)

13830.10. The determination of the board and the record of its proceedings shall be filed with the authority having jurisdiction to assess the death tax in the state determined to be the domicile of the decedent and with the authorities which would have had jurisdiction to assess the death tax in each of the other states involved if the decedent had been found to be domiciled therein. (11866)

13830.11. Notwithstanding the commencement of a legal action for determination of domicile within this state or the commencement of an arbitration proceeding, as provided in Section 13830.3, the Controller may in any case enter into a written agreement with the other taxing officials involved and with the executors to accept a certain sum in full payment of any death tax, together with interest and penalties, that may be due this state; provided, this agreement fixes the amount to be paid the other states involved in the dispute, at any time before that proceeding is concluded. Upon the filing of this agreement with the authority which would have jurisdiction to assess the death tax of this state, if the decedent died domiciled in this state, an assessment shall be made as provided in that agreement, and this assessment finally and conclusively fixes the amount of death tax due this state. If the aggregate amount payable under that agreement or under an agreement made in accordance with the provisions of Section 13830.2 to the states involved is less than the minimum credit allowable to the estate against the United States estate tax imposed with respect thereto, the executor forthwith shall also pay to this state the same percentage of the difference between that aggregate amount and the amount of that credit as the amount payable to this state under that agreement bears to that aggregate amount. (11867)

13830.12. When in any case the board of arbitration determines that a decedent dies domiciled in this state, the total amount of interest and penalties for nonpayment of the tax, between the date of the election and the final determination of the board, shall not exceed 12 percent of the amount of the taxes per annum. (11868)

13830.13. This article shall be applicable only to cases in which each of the states involved in the dispute has in effect therein a law substantially similar hereto. However, nothing contained in this section shall prohibit the application of this article or any part hereof where any of the other states involved in the dispute have in effect therein a law empowering the tax authority to voluntarily enter into a binding arbitration or compromise agreement and such an agreement is so entered into. (11869)

In the case of a decedent who was not a resident of this state at the time of his or her death, the superior court of the county in which the decedent's real property is situated, or, if he or she had no real property in this state, the superior court of the county in which any of his or her personal property is situated, has jurisdiction to hear and determine all questions relative to any tax imposed by this part. If the decedent leaves property in more than one county, the superior court of any such county whose jurisdiction is first invoked has exclusive jurisdiction. (11874)

No fee shall be charged the Controller for filing, recording, or certifying any petition, lis pendens, decree, or order for taking any oath or acknowledgement, in any proceedings under this part; nor shall any undertaking be required from the Controller or the state in any such proceeding.
