  3. Fails to notify the Authority that they are jointly liable for the tax.
  4. Fails to supply relevant information requested in order to establish liability.
  5. Fails to supply relevant information requested after the issue of a Liability Order has been obtained. Failure to supply could lead to a criminal prosecution and a fine.
