220.719 Jeopardy assessments.—
(1) If the department finds that a taxpayer is about to depart from the state, to conceal its property, or to do any other act tending to prejudice or render wholly or partly ineffectual the normal procedures for collection of any amount of tax, penalty, or interest under this chapter, or if the department otherwise finds that the collection of such amount will be jeopardized by delay, the department shall issue to the taxpayer a notice of such findings and shall make demand for the immediate payment of such amount, whereupon such amount shall be deemed assessed and shall become immediately due and payable.
(2) If there is jeopardy to the revenue and jeopardy is asserted in or with an assessment, the department shall proceed in the manner specified for jeopardy assessment in s. 213.732. A jeopardy assessment lien shall have the same scope and effect as other liens prescribed by this chapter.
(3) If the notice and demand relate to the taxpayer’s current taxable period or year, the department shall declare the taxable period or year of the taxpayer immediately terminated, and the notice and demand shall relate to the period or year declared terminated and shall include therein income, deductions, and values accrued or accumulated up to the date of termination if not otherwise properly includable in respect of such taxable year or period.
