New Jersey Statutes, Title: 54, TAXATION
Section: 54:39-122: Evidence presented by purchaser.
22. a. A purchaser desiring to make an election under section 21 of P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-121) shall present evidence to the director that:
(1) The applicant was a licensee in good standing under R.S.54:39-1 et seq. as to which the applicant remitted tax to the director; or
(2) The applicant meets the financial responsibility and bonding requirements imposed by P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-101 et al.), which bond shall conform to the specific requirements of this section.
b. The director shall require a purchaser who pays the tax to a supplier to file with the director a surety bond payable to the State, upon which the purchaser is the obligor, or other financial security, in an amount satisfactory to the director, calculated based on three times the potential monthly tax payments for gasoline and diesel fuel separately. The director shall require that the bond indemnify the director against the tax credits claimed by the suppliers pursuant to section 23 of P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-123).
c. A purchaser desiring to make an election in accordance with section 21 of P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-121) shall not be subject to the provisions of subsection b. of this section if the purchaser holds a valid distributor's license and meets the bonding requirements according to the law on the day prior to January 1, 2011. On and after January 1, 2011 each purchaser holding a valid distributor's license issued prior to January 1, 2011, may elect to become an eligible purchaser. An eligible purchaser shall have the option to provide bonding as provided for distributors in section 34 of P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-134).
d. The director may revoke a purchaser's eligibility and election to defer fuel tax remittances for the purchaser's failure to make timely tax-deferred payment of tax to a supplier pursuant to section 21 of P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-121), after five days' notice of and hearing on such proposed revocation or suspension conducted pursuant to the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.). The revocation shall be implemented by sending written notice to all suppliers and publishing notice of the revocation on the website of the Division of Taxation in the Department of the Treasury. As a condition of restoring a purchaser's eligibility, the director may require further assurance of the financial responsibility of the purchaser, including an increase in the amount of the bond or any other action that the director may reasonably require to ensure remittance of the tax imposed by P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-101 et al.).
An applicant may request a hearing on the denial of an application pursuant to the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.).
e. The director shall publish a list of licensed distributors and make it available to all suppliers on at least a quarterly basis. The director may, at the director's discretion, provide more timely publication via the website of the Division of Taxation in the Department of the Treasury.
L.2010, c.22, s.22; amended 2010, c.79, s.17.
