§ 7782. Application for hearing
Any person aggrieved by any action of the Commissioner or his or her authorized agent under this chapter for which hearing is not elsewhere provided may apply in writing to the Commissioner within 10 days after the notice of such action is delivered or mailed to him or her for a hearing, setting forth the reasons why such hearing should be granted and the manner of relief sought. The Commissioner shall promptly consider each such application and may grant or deny the hearing requested. If the hearing be denied, the applicant shall be notified thereof forthwith. If it be granted, the Commissioner shall notify the applicant of the time and place fixed for such hearing. After such hearing, the Commissioner may make such order in the premises as may appear to him or her just and lawful and shall furnish a copy of such order to the applicant. The Commissioner may, at any time and by notice in writing, order a hearing on his or her own initiative and require the taxpayer or any other individual whom he or she believes to be in possession of information concerning any manufacture, importation, possession, or sale of cigarettes or tobacco products, or both, which have escaped taxation to appear before him or her or his or her duly authorized agent with any specific books of account, paper, or other documents for examination relative thereto.
