RE: Proposed rules relating to revocation of tax licenses due to abandonment

Pursuant to chapter 91, Hawaii Revised Statutes, the Director of Taxation of the State of Hawaii will hold a public hearing at the above-referenced time and place to allow the public to comment on the proposed adoption of rules relating to revocation of tax licenses due to abandonment.

The proposed rules amend chapter 231, Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), by amending section 18-231-3-14.17, HAR. Under current rules, a person whose tax license is revoked by the Department because of abandonment has 90 days after the Department posts notice of its intent to revoke the license to petition the Department not to revoke the license. The proposed rule changes this period of time to 45 days to mirror the period for which the intent to revoke must remain posted under subsection (d) of this section. The proposed rules also make nonsubstantive cleanup amendments to correct cross-references to other sections. .

All interested parties are invited to attend and present their views orally or in writing. Written statements may be submitted to the Rules Office at the Department of Taxation before or at the public hearing.

The proposed rules are available online at and, or by mail at no cost to any person who requests them. A copy of the proposed rules may also be picked up between 7:45 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, from the Rules Office at the Department of Taxation, Room 219, Princess Ruth Keelikolani Building, 830 Punchbowl Street, Honolulu, Hawaii and at the District Tax Offices located at 3060 Eiwa Street, #105, Lihue, Kauai; 54 S High Street, #208, Wailuku, Maui; and 75 Aupuni Street, #101, Hilo, Hawaii.

If you need an auxiliary aid/service or other accommodation due to a disability, contact the Rules Office at 587-1530 or at as soon as possible, preferably by October 7, 2019.
