(c) Personal liability may be imposed pursuant to this section, only if the CDTFA can establish that the corporation or limited liability company had included tax reimbursement in the selling price of, or added tax reimbursement to the selling price of, tangible personal property sold in the conduct of its business, or when it can be established that the corporation or limited liability company consumed tangible personal property and failed to pay the tax to the seller or to report and pay use tax.
