New Jersey Statutes, Title: 54, TAXATION

    Chapter 39:

      Section: 54:39-118: Elections permitted by certain suppliers.

18. a. A licensed supplier or licensed permissive supplier may make a blanket election with the director to treat all removals of fuel from all of its out-of-State terminals with a destination in this State as shown on the terminal-issued shipping paper as if the removals were removed across the rack by the supplier or permissive supplier from a terminal in this State for all purposes.

b. The election allowed by this section shall be made by filing a "notice of election" with the director, in the form and manner as the director by regulation may prescribe.

c. The director shall publish a list of suppliers electing pursuant to this section.

d. The absence of an election by a supplier in accordance with this section shall in no way relieve the supplier of responsibility for remitting the tax imposed by the "Motor Fuel Tax Act," P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-101 et seq.) upon the removal from an out-of-State terminal for import into this State by the supplier.

e. A supplier that makes the election allowed by this section shall precollect the tax imposed by P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-101 et al.) on all removals from a qualified terminal on its account as a position holder, or as a person receiving fuel from a position holder pursuant to a terminal bulk transfer, without regard to the license status of the person acquiring the fuel from the supplier, the point or terms of sale, or the character of delivery.

f. Each supplier who elects to precollect the tax imposed by P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-101 et al.) agrees to waive any defense that this State lacks jurisdiction to require collection on all out-of-State sales by such person as to which the person had knowledge that the shipments were destined for this State and that this State imposes the requirement pursuant to this subsection under its general police powers to regulate the movement of fuels.

L.2010, c.22, s.18.
