  2.  A license is valid until suspended, revoked for cause, or cancelled.

  3.  No license is transferable to another person or to another place of business.  For purposes of this section, a transfer of a majority interest in a business association, including corporations, partnerships, trusts, joint ventures and any other business association shall be deemed to be a transfer of any license held by the business association to another person.  Any change in ownership of a business association, other than a publicly held business association, shall be reported to the director.

  8.  The successor to a licensee shall not have liability for its predecessor if the successor obtains a statement that no tax is due from the director prior to making the transfer of interest.  All successors shall be required to withhold a sufficient amount of the purchase money to cover the amount of such taxes, interest or penalties due and unpaid until such time as the former owner or predecessor, whether immediate or not, shall produce a receipt from the director showing that the taxes have been paid, or a certificate stating that no taxes are due.  If the purchaser of a business or stock of goods shall fail to withhold the purchase money and remit at the time of purchase all amounts so withheld to the director to pay all unpaid taxes, interest and penalties due from the owner or predecessor, the purchaser shall be personally liable for the payment of the taxes, interest and penalties accrued and unpaid on account of the operation of the business by the former owner and person.

  9.  The director shall publish without charge a list with monthly updates of all licensees, by category.

  10.  Every licensee, including interstate motor fuel users, shall maintain and keep for a period of three years records of all transactions by which motor fuel is received, used, sold, delivered, or otherwise disposed of, together with invoices, bills of lading, and other pertinent records and papers as may be required by the director for reasonable administration of this chapter.  Interstate motor fuel users shall keep such records for a further period if so required by a reciprocity agreement.
