  142.851.  Timing election by distributors, requirements. — 1.  Each purchaser desiring to make an election under section 142.848 shall present evidence to the director that:

  (1)  The applicant was a licensee in good standing under the predecessor motor fuel statute as to which the applicant remitted tax to the director; or

  (2)  The applicant meets the financial responsibility and bonding requirements imposed by this chapter, which bond shall conform to the specific requirements of this section.

  2.  The director may 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 with a maximum of three times monthly potential tax payments with a maximum amount of one hundred fifty thousand dollars for gasoline and diesel fuel separately.  The director may require that the bond indemnify the director against the tax credits claimed by the suppliers pursuant to section 142.854.

  3.  Each purchaser desiring to make an election in accordance with section 142.848 shall not be subject to the provisions of subsection 2 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 the effective date of sections 142.800 to 142.953.  Upon January 1, 1999, each purchaser holding a valid distributor's license issued prior to January 1, 1999, may elect to become an eligible purchaser.  Such purchaser shall have the option to provide bonding as provided for distributors in section 142.896.

  4.  The director shall have the authority to rescind a purchaser's eligibility and election to defer motor fuel tax remittances for the failure to make timely tax-deferred payment of tax to a supplier pursuant to section 142.848, by sending written notice to all suppliers or publishing notice of the revocation.  As a condition of restoring a purchaser's eligibility the director may require further assurance of the financial responsibility of the purchaser, including increasing the bond required up to the three times potential liability without regard to a maximum, or any other action that the director may reasonably require to ensure remittance of the motor fuel tax.  Any person whose application is refused or eligibility cancelled by the director may seek review of the determination by the administrative hearing commission.  Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, the administrative hearing commission shall not grant a stay.

  5.  The director shall publish a list of eligible purchasers and make it available to all suppliers.
