A. It shall be the duty of every supplier, licensed importer or any other appropriate person under this act to precollect and remit any assessment so precollected pursuant to the provisions of this act and Section 354 of this title and make and submit an assessment collection report as required by this section.
B. 1. The assessment imposed pursuant to the provision of Section 354 of this title shall be collected and remitted to the Oklahoma Tax Commission at the same time and in the same manner as provided by law for the collection and remission of tax levies upon the sale of gasoline within this state. The basis for computation of the amount due shall be one hundred percent (100%) of the net gallonage reported to the Tax Commission for assessment.
2. Each supplier, licensed importer or other appropriate person shall make and submit for each calendar month that the assessment is imposed an itemized and verified assessment collection report showing:
a.the name of the supplier, licensed importer or other appropriate person collecting the assessment;
b.the total amount of motor fuel, diesel fuel and blending materials sold during the preceding month;
c.the total amount of assessments collected by the supplier, licensed importer or other appropriate person during the preceding month; and
d.such further information the Tax Commission may require to enable it to compute correctly and collect the assessment made pursuant to this act.
The reports shall be filed at the same time and in like manner as required for gasoline tax reports pursuant to this act.
C. Every supplier, licensed importer or other appropriate person shall keep and preserve suitable records of the gross sales of motor fuel, diesel fuel and blending materials, the assessment collected and such other pertinent records and documents which may be necessary to determine the amount of assessment due as will substantiate and prove the accuracy of the reports. All the records shall be preserved for a period of three (3) years, unless the Tax Commission, in writing, has authorized their destruction or disposal at an earlier date. The records shall be open for examination by employees of the Tax Commission, the Corporation Commission or the Oklahoma Department of Transportation in the performance of their duties pursuant to law.
D. Any supplier, licensed importer or other appropriate person who fails to comply with any provisions of this section shall pay a penalty imposed by the Tax Commission. Any monies collected for payment of the penalty shall be deposited in the same manner as the assessments pursuant to the provisions of subsection B of Section 354 of this title. The penalty shall be equal to ten percent (10%) of the gross amount of the assessments received by the supplier, licensed importer or other appropriate person for the report period that the supplier, licensed importer or other appropriate person failed to timely mail the required report or remit any monies collected pursuant to the provisions of this act.
E. The Tax Commission shall keep a separate accounting of all the monies received pursuant to this section and together with any interests and penalties thereon shall deposit such monies monthly as provided in subsection B of Section 354 of this title.
