For payments due after the effective date of the amendment and reenactment of this section during the year one thousand nine hundred ninety-three, every action or process to collect any premium, premium deposit, interest or penalty due from an employer pursuant to this article by the executive director shall be brought or issued within five years next after the date on which the employer is required by the section imposing the premium, premium deposit, interest or penalty to file a report and pay the amount due thereunder. The limitation provided by this section shall also apply to enforcement of the lien, if any, securing the payment of the premium, premium deposit, interest or penalty, but shall not apply in the event of fraud or in the event the employer wholly fails to file the report required by the section imposing the premium, premium deposit, interest or penalty. For payments that were due prior to the effective date of this section, there continues to be no limitation on when actions or processes may be brought or issued. For every debt collectible under this section which first becomes due and owing after the effective date of the amendment and reenactment of this section during the year two thousand three, every action or process to collect the debt shall be brought or issued within ten years after the date on which the employer is required to file a report and pay the amount assessed or owed to the commission.
