  2.  To claim an exemption and refund in accordance with this section, a person shall present to the director a statement containing a written verification that the claim is made under penalty of perjury and that states the total fuel tax paid in the applicable fiscal year for each vehicle for which the exemption and refund is claimed.  The claim shall not be transferred or assigned, and shall be filed on or after July first, but not later than September thirtieth, following the fiscal year for which the exemption and refund is claimed.  The claim statement may be submitted electronically, and shall at a minimum include the following information:

  (1)  Vehicle identification number of the motor vehicle into which the motor fuel was delivered;

  (2)  Date of sale;

  (3)  Name and address of purchaser;

  (4)  Name and address of seller;

  (5)  Number of gallons purchased; and

  (6)  Number of gallons purchased and charged Missouri fuel tax, as a separate item.

  3.  Every person shall maintain and keep records supporting the claim statement filed with the department of revenue for a period of three years to substantiate all claims for exemption and refund of the motor fuel tax, together with invoices, original sales receipts marked paid by the seller, bills of lading, and other pertinent records and paper as may be required by the director for reasonable administration of this chapter.

  4.  The director may make any investigation necessary before issuing an exemption and refund under this section, and may investigate an exemption and refund under this section after it has been issued and within the time frame for making adjustments to the tax pursuant to this chapter.

  5.  If an exemption and refund is not issued within forty-five days of an accurate and complete filing, as required by this chapter, the director shall pay interest at the rate provided in section 32.065 accruing after the expiration of the forty-five-day period until the date the exemption and refund is issued.

  6.  The exemption and refund specified in this section shall be available only with regard to motor fuel delivered into a motor vehicle with a gross weight, as defined in section 301.010, of twenty-six thousand pounds or less.

  7.  The director shall promulgate rules as necessary to implement the provisions of this section.  Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028.  This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2021, shall be invalid and void.
