  2.  Any applicant of a tax credit program who knowingly employs unauthorized aliens shall forfeit any tax credits issued to such applicant which have not been redeemed, and shall repay the amount of any tax credits redeemed by such applicant during the period of time such unauthorized alien was employed by the applicant.  Such forfeiture and repayment shall be additional to, and not in lieu of, any penalties imposed pursuant to section 135.810.  As used in this subsection, the term "unauthorized alien" shall mean an alien who does not have the legal right or authorization under federal law to work in the United States, as defined under Section 8 U.S.C. 1324a(h)(3).  The amount of tax credits required to be repaid under this subsection, but which are not repaid by the applicant, shall be subject to the same procedure and provisions of law as a liability for unpaid income tax arising on the date that the department of revenue became aware of the violation of this provision.
