    Chapter 12:

      Section: 5:12-68: Collection of fees, penalties or tax.

68. Collection of Fees, Penalties or Tax. At any time within five years after any amount of fees, interest, penalties or tax required to be collected pursuant to the provisions of this act shall become due and payable, the division may bring a civil action in the courts of this State or any other state or of the United States, in the name of the State of New Jersey, to collect the amount delinquent, together with penalties and interest. An action may be brought whether or not the person owing the amount is at such time an applicant, licensee or registrant pursuant to the provisions of this act. If such action is brought in this State, a writ of attachment may be issued and no bond or affidavit prior to the issuance thereof shall be required. In all actions in this State, the records of the commission and the division shall be prima facie evidence of the determination of the fee or tax or the amount of the delinquency.

Each debt that is due and payable as a result of fees, interest, penalties, or taxes required to be collected pursuant to the provisions of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-1 et seq.) or the regulations promulgated thereunder, including any compensation authorized pursuant to section 33 of P.L.1978, c.7 (C.5:12-130.3), and each regulatory obligation imposed as a condition upon the issuance or renewal of a casino license which requires the licensee to maintain, as a fiduciary, a fund for a specific regulatory purpose, shall constitute a lien on the real property in this State owned or hereafter acquired by the applicant, licensee, or registrant owing such a debt or on whom such an obligation has been imposed. Except as otherwise provided in R.S.54:5-9, such a lien shall be a first lien paramount to all prior or subsequent liens, claims, or encumbrances on that property.

L.1977, c.110, s.68; amended 1987, c.354, s.6; 1991, c.182, s.14; 2011, c.19, s.35.
