1012-a. Multi-jurisdictional account wagering providers. A multi-jurisdictional account wagering provider shall only be licensed under the following conditions:

1. the multi-jurisdictional account wagering provider is licensed by the state in which it is located and, if required, by each state in which it operates;

2. the character and the background of the multi-jurisdictional account wagering provider is such that granting the applications for a license is in the public interest and the best interest of honest horse racing;

3. the multi-jurisdictional account wagering provider shall utilize the services of an independent third party to perform identity and verification services with respect to the establishment of wagering accounts for persons who are residents of the state of New York;

4. the commission shall be allowed access to the premises of the multi-jurisdictional account wagering provider to visit, investigate and, place such expert accountants and other persons it deems necessary for the purpose of insuring compliance with the rules and regulations of the commission;

5. if not already registered, the multi-jurisdictional account wagering provider shall agree promptly to take those steps necessary to qualify to do business in New York state, and to maintain such status in good standing throughout the license period;

6. multi-jurisdictional account wagering providers shall pay a market origin fee equal to five per centum on each wager accepted from New York residents. Multi-jurisdictional account wagering providers shall make the required payments to the market origin account on or before the fifth business day of each month and such required payments shall cover payments due for the period of the preceding calendar month; provided, however, that such payments required to be made on April fifteenth shall be accompanied by a report under oath, showing the total of all such payments, together with such other information as the commission may require. A penalty of five per centum and interest at the rate of one per centum per month from the date the report is required to be filed to the date the payment shall be payable in case any payments required by this subdivision are paid when due. If the commission determines that any moneys received under this subdivision were paid in error, the commission may cause the same to be refunded without interest out of any moneys collected thereunder, provided an application therefor is filed with the commission within one year from the time the erroneous payment was made. The commission shall pay into the racing regulation account, under the joint custody of the comptroller and the commission, the total amount of the fee collected pursuant to this section.
