40:48F-6 Written notification of nonpayment of taxes; actions of municipality.
3. a. The State Treasurer shall annually provide to a municipality that has adopted an ordinance imposing the tax pursuant to section 3 of P.L.2003, c.114 (C.40:48F-1) written notification of nonpayment by a hotel or motel of taxes required to be paid under the ordinance. The written notification required by this section shall also authorize the municipality to act as the collection agent for the outstanding balance of taxes due and owing to it in place of the State Treasurer.
b.In the event that the tax authorized and imposed under section 3 of P.L.2003, c.114 (C.40:48F-1) is not paid as and when due by a hotel or motel, the unpaid balance, and any interest accruing thereon, shall be a lien on the parcel of real property comprising the hotel or motel in the same manner as all other unpaid municipal taxes, fees, or other charges. The lien shall be superior and paramount to the interest in such parcel of any owner, lessee, tenant, mortgagee, or other person, except the lien of municipal taxes and shall be on a parity with and deemed equal to the municipal lien on the parcel for unpaid property taxes due and owing in the same year.
A municipality shall file in the office of its tax collector a statement showing the amount and due date of the unpaid balance and identifying the lot and block number of the parcel of real property that comprises the delinquent hotel or motel. The lien shall be enforced as a municipal lien in the same manner as all other municipal liens are enforced.
