§ 44-13-33 - Collection by writ of execution.

SECTION 44-13-33

   § 44-13-33  Collection by writ of execution. – If any tax or penalty imposed by this chapter shall not be paid within thirty (30) days after the tax or penalty shall become due and payable, the tax administrator, in addition to any other powers provided by law, may petition the sixth (6th) division of the district court for a writ of execution, setting forth the nonpayment of the tax or penalty. The court shall appoint a time for a hearing and shall cause a reasonable notice of the hearing to be given to the adverse party, and at the time and place of the return of the notice shall proceed summarily to hear the parties. If upon the hearing it shall appear that the tax or penalty is unpaid, the court shall issue an execution for the collection of the tax or penalty, which shall run to the sheriffs, or their deputies, of the several counties of this state, and in which the officer making service of the execution shall be commanded to levy upon the property of the corporation as may be taken on execution. The officer charged with the service of the execution shall serve the execution as commanded, and shall sell the property seized as property is sold when taken on execution in actions at law, or the court shall take other action as it may deem proper to enforce the payment of the tax by the appointment of a receiver of the property of the corporation, or otherwise. A party aggrieved by a final order of the court may seek review of the order in the supreme court by writ of certiorari in accordance with the procedures contained in § 42-35-16.
