      Section: 54:39-107: Transporter reports, registration of fuel conveyance.

7. a. (1) Transporter reports shall cover monthly periods and shall be submitted within 30 days after the close of the month covered by the reports. The transporter reports shall show all quantities of each type of motor fuel delivered at points in the State or from points inside the State to points outside of the State during the month, giving the name and address of the consignor, the name and address of the consignee, place at which delivered, the date of shipment, the date of delivery, the numbers and initials of the car if shipped by rail, the name of the boat or barge, if shipped by water, or if delivery by other means, the method of delivery and the number of gallons in each shipment.

(2) The director shall have the right at any time during normal business hours to inspect the books of a transporter to determine if the requirements of this section are being properly complied with.

(3) Each person engaged in the business of hauling, transporting or delivering fuel shall, before entering upon the highways or waterways of this State with any conveyance used therein, apply to the director for the registration of a fuel conveyance on forms as the director shall prescribe. Upon receipt of an application, a license certificate and license plate shall be issued for each conveyance which shall show the license number assigned and which shall be displayed on the conveyance at all times in such a manner as the director may regulate. An annual license fee of $50 shall be paid for the licensing of each such conveyance. Nothing in this section shall in any manner relieve or discharge persons obtaining licenses pursuant to this section from complying with provisions of other laws.

(4) A person coming into this State in a motor vehicle may transport in the vehicle fuel supply tank, for the propulsion thereof, fuel without paying the tax, securing the license, or making any report required under P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-101 et al.).

b. (1) The driver of a conveyance shall have in the driver's possession at all times while hauling, distributing or transporting fuel, a delivery ticket or other form approved by the director, which shall show the true names of the consignor and consignee and such information as the director may prescribe by regulation. The director or any police officer may stop a conveyance to determine if the provisions of this section are being complied with.

(2) The person in charge of any barge, tanker or other vessel in which fuel is being transported, or of a tank truck, truck tractor, semitrailer, trailer, or other vehicle used in transporting fuels other than fuel being transported for use in operating the engine which propels the vessel or vehicle, shall have in that person's possession an invoice, bill of sale or other evidence showing the name and address of the consignor or person from whom that fuel was received by the person in charge and the name and address of the consignee or person to whom the person in charge is to make delivery of the fuel, together with the number of gallons to be delivered to that person, and shall at the request of the director produce that invoice, bill of sale or other record evidence for inspection.

c. The license certificates issued for the operation over the highways or waterways of this State of any conveyance used for the transportation or hauling of fuels may be suspended or revoked upon reasonable grounds by the director in the same manner as other licenses may be suspended or revoked by the director under the provisions of P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-101 et al.).

L.2010, c.22, s.7; amended 2010, c.79, s.6.
