Sec. 6. (a) A receiver, a trustee in dissolution, a trustee in bankruptcy, or an assignee operating the property or business of a taxpayer shall file a utility receipts tax return for that taxpayer and pay any tax due on gross receipts reported in the return in the same manner that the taxpayer would be required to file a return and pay the tax under this chapter if the taxpayer had control of the business or property.
(b) Any fiduciary filing a return under subsection (a) shall report all previously unreported income derived from property or business controlled by the fiduciary.
(c) The utility receipts tax liability imposed upon any property held by a fiduciary described in subsection (a) is a lien upon the property from which the gross receipts were derived.
(d) If any utility receipts tax is due and unpaid after a fiduciary described in subsection (a) is discharged, each distributee is liable for the utility receipts tax due in an amount equal to the quotient of:
(1) the distributee's share of the business or property sold; divided by
(2) the total distribution made by the fiduciary.
(e) Any resident of Indiana who is a fiduciary described in subsection (a), and who receives gross receipts for a distributee who is not an Indiana resident, must file a utility receipts tax return and pay the utility receipts tax due with that return before making a distribution to the distributee.
(f) Any taxpayer who is a resident of Indiana, and who receives gross receipts from a fiduciary described in subsection (a) who is not a resident of Indiana, shall file a return reporting the receipt of such gross receipts and shall pay any utility receipts tax due on such gross receipts, as though the gross receipts had been received directly by the taxpayer, unless the nonresident fiduciary has already paid the tax due on the gross receipts.
