149.025. Bond required for deferred payment on stamps--release from requirement, when--cash bond, deposit and refund--license revoked for delinquencies
1. Any wholesaler desiring to purchase stamps or meter units on a deferred payment basis shall file with the director a bond in an amount equal to the estimated total monthly tax liability of the wholesaler. However, the director shall not require a bond in excess of the amount required by a tax of five mills per cigarette, and such bond shall not exceed five hundred thousand dollars. The director may also require any wholesaler purchasing stamps in this manner to file certain reports or keep certain records as the director may deem necessary. The director of the department of revenue shall, after a five-year period of satisfactory tax compliance, release such wholesaler from the bonding requirement.
2. In the event the bond filed with the director is cash, the director shall deposit such bond in the state general revenue fund and such bond shall be released to the wholesaler pursuant to subsection 1 of this section from funds appropriated by the general assembly for such purpose. If appropriated funds are available, the commissioner of administration and the state treasurer shall cause such refunds to be paid within thirty days of the receipt of a warrant request from the director of the department of revenue.
3. In the event that payment of the total deferment liability becomes delinquent after fifteen days from the last day of the month during which the purchase was made, the director shall revoke the license held by the wholesaler, subject to other provisions of this chapter, for a period of one year and shall cause any cash bond to be forfeited or shall notify the bonding company requesting that payment be made under the terms of the bond.
