2-10-104. Probate court to determine; discretion allowed; presumption of correctness.
(a) The probate court having jurisdiction over the administration of the estate of a decedent shall determine the apportionment of the tax. If there are no probate proceedings, the probate court of the county wherein the decedent was domiciled at death upon the application of the person required to pay the tax shall determine the apportionment of the tax.
(b) If the probate court finds that it is inequitable to apportion interest and penalties in the manner provided in W.S. 2-10-103 because of special circumstances, it may direct apportionment thereof in the manner it finds equitable.
(c) If the probate court finds that the assessment of penalties and interest assessed in relation to the tax is due to delay caused by the negligence of the fiduciary, the court may charge the fiduciary with the amount of the assessed penalties and interest.
(d) In any suit or judicial proceeding to recover from any person interested in the estate the amount of the tax apportioned to the person in accordance with this act, the determination of the probate court in respect thereto shall be prima facie correct.
