AS 16.05.470. Fee For Issuance of Licenses.

(a) A person appointed by the commissioner to sell licenses under AS 16.05.440 - 16.05.480, except salaried employees of the state, shall retain the sum of 10 percent of the fee for the issuance of a license. An agent shall transmit monthly to the commissioner all license fees collected by the agent, less the authorized commission, together with a full accounting of the fees. The commissioner shall make monthly remittances of the fees collected to the proper state official. The commissioner is not liable for defalcation or failure to account for the fees collected by an agent, but the commissioner shall require a bond in the sum the commissioner considers adequate, conditioned upon the faithful accounting of money collected.

(b) [Repealed, Sec. 5 ch 21 SLA 1990].

(c) Forms and fees under (a) of this section shall be transmitted to the commissioner by the last day of the month following the month in which the fees are collected. The commissioner may grant an extension of not more than 30 days if the agent establishes that

(1) failure to grant an extension would impose an excessive financial hardship on the agent;

(2) the fees collected by the agent for the period, including the amount that the agent is authorized to retain, totals less than $1,000; and

(3) the cumulative amount of fees due from the agent, including the fees due for the current period, does not exceed $1,000.

(d) The commissioner may assess a penalty against an agent who does not transmit fees within the time allowed under (c) of this section. The penalty is equal to one and one-half percent of the amount of fees due. The penalty may be assessed for each month or portion of a month that the fees are delinquent.
