§ 18:26-4.2 Compromise and settlement of certain tax claims or liens; waiver of defenses
Where any lien or claim for any past due transfer inheritance taxes or estate or transfer taxes shall be brought into question, claimed to be invalid or impaired, or shall be in the course of litigation, or the Director, and the State Treasurer shall, after investigation, determine that there is reasonable doubt of the State's ability to enforce said lien or claim or to collect the taxes due, or claimed to be due, or that there is a reasonable doubt that said lien is valid or unimpaired, such officer shall enter into an agreement with the executor, administrator or trustee of any estate against whose assets said lien or claim shall be asserted, or the heirs, next of kin or beneficiaries succeeding to the property of any decedent against which such lien or claim is asserted, to alter, revise, compromise and settle all claims or liens for past due inheritance taxes or estate or transfer taxes, together with all interest or interest penalties thereon; provided, however, that the executor, administrator, trustee, heir or heirs, next of kin, beneficiary or beneficiaries, shall waive all defenses which might be set up against the claim or lien of the State and shall submit to such terms of payment and settlement as the Treasurer or Director shall deem to be equitable and just and in the best interest of the State.
