AS 23.20.200. Lien.

(a) A claim for contributions, including interest and penalties, not paid when due is a lien in favor of the state against all the real and personal property of the employer.

(b) The claim becomes a lien when the department records a notice of the lien with the recording officer of the recording district in which the property is located. The claim becomes a lien on a motor vehicle when the department files a notice of the lien in the office of the commissioner of administration. Filing or recording of the notice of lien is constructive notice of the lien against the property described in the notice to creditors of the owner, and to subsequent purchasers and encumbrancers.

(c) [Repealed, Sec. 80 ch 9 SLA 1980].

(d) The department may release a notice of lien by filing or recording a certificate of release in the manner prescribed for the filing or recording of a notice of lien. The department may not file or record a certificate of release until the amount of contributions, including interest, and penalties and costs, is paid, or until it receives assurance of payment which it considers adequate.
