B. The person instituting the action shall execute a bond payable to the defendant in the action, conditioned that the plaintiff will prosecute the action with diligence and finality or will pay all damages sustained by the defendant by reason of the action and all costs incurred therein.
C. If the taxpayer prevails in the action, the court shall allow him costs and reasonable attorney's fees, not to exceed forty per cent of the amount recovered or saved to the state, as the case may be.Section: Previous 35-196.02 35-196.03 35-196.04 35-196.05 35-197 35-211 35-212 35-213 35-214 35-215 35-301 35-302 35-310 35-311 35-312 Next
