Any person subject to this tax engaging in or permitting such practices as are prohibited by rules and regulations of the Department or any person who upon demand of the Department or any of its officers or agents refuses to allow full inspection of the premises or any part thereof, or in any way interferes with any agent of the Department in the performance of his duties in enforcing this chapter, shall be guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor. Further, a stamping agent shall have such agent's stamping permit suspended and be subject to a penalty of $1,000 for each day the stamping agent engages in or permits practices that are prohibited by rules and regulations of the Department or refuses to allow full inspection of the premises or any part thereof, or in any way interferes with any agent of the Department in the performance of his duties in enforcing this chapter. Such penalty shall be assessed and collected by the Department as other taxes are collected.
