17 OK Stat § 17-39.2 (2015) What's This?

A. All remittances of taxes and fees required to be paid to the Corporation Commission pursuant to state law, shall be made to the Commission by bank draft, check, cashier’s check, money order, cash, or nationally recognized credit card or debit card. If payment is made by credit or debit card, the Commission may add an amount equal to the amount of the service charge incurred by the Commission, not to exceed four percent (4%) of the amount of the payment, as a convenience fee for the acceptance of the credit or debit card. For purposes of this subsection “nationally recognized credit or debit card” means any instrument or device, whether known as a credit card, credit plate, charge plate, debit card, or by any other name issued with or without fee by an issuer for the use of the cardholder in obtaining goods, service, or anything of value on credit which is accepted by over one thousand merchants in this state. The Commission shall promulgate rules to allow for the implementation of payment of taxes and fees by credit or debit card.

B. All remittances by bank draft, check, cashier's check, or money order, collected pursuant to any law, Commission rule, or order, shall be made payable to the Corporation Commission. The Commission shall issue its receipt, for cash or money payment to the remitter. No remittance other than cash shall be in full discharge of liability due the Corporation Commission unless and until it shall have been paid in cash. All money collected, including service or convenience fees, shall be deposited with the State Treasurer of this state.

C. There shall be assessed, in addition to any other penalties provided for by law, an administrative service fee of Twenty Dollars ($20.00) on each check returned to the Corporation Commission or any agent by reason of the refusal of the bank upon which the check was drawn to honor the same.

D. Upon the return of any check by reason of the refusal of the bank upon which the check was drawn to honor the same, the Corporation Commission may file a bogus check complaint with the appropriate district attorney who shall refer the complaint to the Bogus Check Restitution Program established by Section 111 of Title 22 of the Oklahoma Statutes. Funds collected by the program, after collection of the fee authorized by Section 114 of Title 22 of the Oklahoma Statutes, shall be transmitted to the Corporation Commission and credited to the liability for which the returned check was drawn and to the administrative service fee provided by this section.
