  142.812.  Excise tax on motor fuel losses unaccounted for — liability for excise tax. — 1.  An excise tax at the motor fuel rate is imposed annually on unaccounted for motor fuel losses at a terminal that exceed one half of one percent of the number of net gallons removed from the terminal during the calendar year by a system transfer or at a rack.  To determine if this tax applies, the terminal operator must determine the terminal loss as the difference between the following:

  (1)  The amount of motor fuel in inventory at the terminal at the beginning of the year plus the amount of motor fuel received at the terminal during the year; and

  (2)  The amount of motor fuel in inventory at the terminal at the end of the year plus the amount of motor fuel removed from the terminal during the year.

  2.  The terminal operator whose motor fuel is unaccounted for is liable for the tax imposed by this section.  Motor fuel received by a terminal operator and not shown on a report as having been removed from the terminal is presumed to be unaccounted for.  A terminal operator may provide documentation to substantiate unaccountable losses.
