Rs 47:818.125 Failure To Pay Tax Or Furnish Bond; Subject To Attachment; Suit To Enjoin Further Pursuit Of Business

§818.125. Failure to pay tax or furnish bond; subject to attachment; suit to enjoin further

pursuit of business

A. Failure to pay any tax levied in this Subpart or any interest, penalties, or

applicable costs or failure to furnish bond as provided in this Subpart shall ipso facto and

without demand or putting in default, make the tax, penalties, and interest delinquent and

shall be construed as an attempt to avoid the payment of the tax, penalties, and interest,

which shall be sufficient grounds for attachment of the compressed natural gas, liquefied

natural gas, or liquefied petroleum gas, wherever fuel may be located or found, whether the

delinquent taxpayer is a resident or nonresident of this state and whether the compressed

natural gas, liquefied natural gas, or liquefied petroleum gas is in the possession of the

delinquent taxpayer or in the possession of other persons. Each compressed natural gas,

liquefied natural gas, or liquefied petroleum gas licensee shall be responsible for the payment

of the applicable tax levied in this Subpart, together with any interest, penalties, and costs

accruing thereon, and the secretary may attach, seize, or sequester any compressed natural

gas, liquefied natural gas, or liquefied petroleum gas subject to tax under this Subpart when

a tax is not paid when it was due and payable. The procedure prescribed by law shall be

followed except that the secretary shall not be required to provide a bond.

B. When a licensee fails to pay any tax levied under this Subpart, or any interest,

penalties, or applicable costs or fails to furnish bond as provided in this Subpart, the secretary

may file a rule on the licensee, by motion in a court of competent jurisdiction, to show cause

as to why the licensee should not be ordered to cease from further pursuit of business as a

licensee. The rule shall be heard by the court not less than two days nor more than ten days,

exclusive of holidays, after service of the rule on the licensee. The rule may be tried out of

term and in chambers, and shall always be tried by preference. In case the rule is made

absolute, the order rendered by the court shall be considered a judgment in favor of the state

prohibiting the licensee from the further pursuit of the business until the licensee has paid

the delinquent tax, penalties, and interest and has furnished the bond required by this

Subpart. Each violation of the injunction shall be considered a contempt of court and shall

be punishable in accordance with the law.

C. When a bond has been furnished by the licensee, the surety on the bond may be

joined in the rule with the licensee and may be held liable in solido for the amount of tax,

interest, penalties, attorney fees, and costs.
