24VAC20-100-460. Uncollected Checks Submitted for Payment of Taxes or Fees.

If any check submitted to the department for the payment of taxes or fees is returned to the department unpaid because the bank on which the check is drawn finds insufficient funds in the account, no account in the name of the licensee, or that the account is closed, an additional fee of $25, or the amount specified in § 2.2-614.1 of the Code of Virginia, or 10% of the check, whichever is greater, will be imposed upon the person presenting such check to the department. This penalty applies to checks submitted for any fee or tax required or authorized to be collected by the department and is in addition to any other penalties imposed, except that where there is a specific penalty set forth by statute for the nonpayment or late payment of fees or taxes, this penalty applies only to the extent that it exceeds such specific penalty. The fees received by the commissioner under this section are used to defray the expenses incurred by the department in the collection of bad checks and are in addition to the regular appropriation made by the General Assembly.
