- (a) An applicant for a license under this chapter shall, in or with the application, state under oath the amount of each

extent of lienable real property owned by the applicant in the state against which the tax may be collected and other
information with respect to description, location, and value of the property that the department prescribes.
- (b) Except as provided in (c) and (e) of this section, if the lienable value of the property is not equal to three times
the amount of the tax for which the applicant will probably be liable under this section, the department may not issue
the license until the applicant files with the department a surety bond approved by the attorney general in a penal sum
equal to twice the probable amount of the tax for which the applicant will be liable, conditioned upon payment of the
tax in full when due, with interest and penalties if not paid before delinquency.
- (c) An applicant may elect to avoid the requirements of (a) and (b) of this section if the applicant

the month following the month in which liability for the payment of the taxes was incurred;
- (2) pays the taxes and assessments for which the applicant is liable under AS 16.51, AS 43.76, and AS 43.77 on or before the 15th day of the month following the month in
which the liability for the payment of the taxes or assessments was incurred;
- (3) remits to the department the taxes and assessments that the applicant is required to collect under AS 43.76 on or before the 15th day of the month following the month in
which the taxes or assessments were required to be collected; and
- (4) either
- (A) files a bond in the amount of $50,000; or
- (B) provides the department with proof that the applicant is the owner of lienable real property in the state of a value
of at least $100,000.
- (d) A bond filed under (c) of this section must be conditioned upon the payment of the taxes under (c)(1) of this section
in full when due.
- (e) The department may waive the bond requirement under (b) or (c) of this section if the applicant posts other security
in the form of collateral acceptable to the department or prepays the estimated tax.
- (f) An applicant that fails to pay amounts due under this section is subject to civil penalties set out under AS 43.05.220
- (g) Real property, a surety bond, or other security being used to secure payment of the tax for the year
preceding the application year may also be used to secure payment of the estimated tax for the application year if the security is
acceptable to the department and the applicant has not failed to pay a tax under this chapter in a timely manner during any of the three
years preceding the application year.
