The fines for the special class B felony of up to $100,000 in Iowa are going to be separate for the fines and penalties if she was convicted of the tax stamp violation as well. The fines of up to $250 per gram are in addition to the special class B felony fines as it is for the Tax evasion charge you said she was additionally convicted on in addition to the distribution charge pursuant to Iowa Code SEC. 43. 453B.7 TAX IMPOSED - RATE OF TAX.
As far as payment plans, this is up to the sentencing court and also the department of revenue that has a right to collect the tax. They will seek to begin to try to impose liens close to 30 days after her conviction and imposition of sentence
on her conviction. They will put a lien on any property she owns and can seek to seize any personal property to satisfy the tax lien which is separate from the criminal
fine, which generally can be waived or have some type of payment plan or garnishment imposed by the court.
