  2.  The person operating or managing the business described in subsection 1 of this section shall collect the tax from the transient guest or guests to the extent possible under the provisions of sections 67.601 to 67.626, but the inability to collect any part or all of the tax does not relieve that person of the obligation to pay to the commission the tax imposed by section 67.619.

  3.  It shall be unlawful for any person to advertise or hold out or state to the public or to any transient guest, directly or indirectly, that the tax or any part thereof imposed by section 67.619, and required to be collected by that person, will be absorbed by that person, or anyone on behalf of that person, or that it will not be separately stated and added to the price of the sleeping room, or if added, that it or any part thereof will be refunded.

  4.  Any person operating or managing a business who owes any tax, penalty or interest, or is required to file any report with the commission, shall notify the commission in writing at least ten days prior to any sale of the entire business or the entire assets or property of the business, or a major part thereof.  Such notice shall include the name of the business, the name of the owner of the business, the name of the person collecting the tax at the time of the notice, the name of the purchaser, and the intended date of purchase.  A purchaser of such business, assets or property who takes with notice of any delinquent tax or with notice of noncompliance with this section takes subject to any tax, penalty or interest owed by the seller.

  5.  The commission shall have the power to bring a civil action in any court of competent jurisdiction to enjoin the operation of the business of any person or the successor-in-interest to any person operating or managing the same business, which business gave rise to any tax, penalty or interest which is unpaid or to enjoin the operating or managing of any such business whose owners or successors-in-interest are operating or managing in violation of the provisions of sections 67.601 to 67.626.  The courts shall expedite the hearing on the merits of any such action and shall not require the commission to post a bond pending such hearing.
