15-30-2633. Stay of enforcement against military personnel. (1) A person described in 15-30-2632 may, during the person's period of military service or within 6 months thereafter, apply to a court for relief in respect of any tax obligation or any tax liability incurred by the person prior to the person's period of military service or in respect of any tax obligation or liability, whether falling due prior to or during the person's period of military service. Any district court of the state after appropriate notice and hearing, unless in its opinion the ability of the applicant to comply with the terms of the obligation or liability or to pay the tax or assessment has not been materially affected by reason of the person's military service, may grant a stay of enforcement during the applicant's period of military service and from the date of termination of the period of military service or from the date of application, if made after the service, for a period of time equal to the period of military service of the applicant or any part of that period. The stay is subject to payment of the balance of principal and accumulated interest due and unpaid at the date of termination of the period of military service or from the date of application, as the case may be, in equal periodic installments during the extended period at the rate of interest that may be prescribed for the tax obligation or tax liability or assessment if paid when due and subject to other terms that may be just.
(2) When a court has granted a stay as provided in this section, a fine or penalty may not accrue during the period the terms and conditions of the stay are complied with by reason of the failure to comply with the terms or conditions of the tax obligation, tax liability, or assessment in respect of which the stay was granted.
