8-1,116. Same; sale of fleet vehicle not to affect liability for fee payment; addition of vehicle, transfer of registration; fees; loss of vehicle not being replaced, refund; conditions of refund. (a) If a fleet owner sells or otherwise disposes of a vehicle which is part of such owner's fleet registered hereunder, the sale or disposal of such vehicle shall not affect or reduce such fleet owner's obligation or liability to pay the annual apportioned registration fee for such fleet or any apportioned quarterly installments for such fleet as determined by such fleet owner's original application.
(b) If any vehicle which is part of a fleet registered under the provisions of this act is disposed of by the fleet owner, and such owner desires to register an additional or newly acquired vehicle during the registration year, and such additional or newly acquired vehicle is eligible for and part of the owner's apportioned fleet, such additional or newly acquired vehicle may be registered as part of such owner's fleet for the remainder of the registration year without the payment of an additional apportioned registration fee, other than transfer fee and title fee, if the annual apportioned fleet registration fee applicable for the additional or newly acquired vehicle is the same as that of the vehicle which is being deleted by such owner. If the annual apportioned registration fee for the additional or newly acquired vehicle is greater than the annual apportioned registration fee for the vehicle being deleted, such fleet owner shall pay the full difference in apportioned registration fee. No certificate of title shall be assigned or transferred or a new certificate of title be issued for any vehicle which is part of such owner's fleet when such fleet owner is delinquent in the payment of apportioned fleet registration fees.
(c) Any owner of a truck or truck tractor based in Kansas and registered as a vehicle in a fleet registered on an apportioned basis for which applicable apportioned registration fees have been paid, which truck or truck tractor is sold, junked, repossessed, foreclosed by a mechanic's lien or has had title transferred by operation of law, and which vehicle is not being replaced in the fleet by another motor vehicle, may secure a refund by making application to the division of vehicles on a form provided and prescribed by the director of vehicles. Such refund shall include only the portion of the fee applicable to the Kansas apportioned registration fee for that vehicle for the remaining portion of the registration year. Such application for refund shall be accompanied by the Kansas base plate issued for that vehicle and the cab card issued therewith. In the event the owner of such vehicle is deceased and such vehicle will not be used on the highways, and title is not currently being transferred, the proper representative of the estate shall be entitled to such refund. Where the vehicle is registered on an apportioned basis under a quarterly fleet registration, as provided in K.S.A. 8-1,115, and amendments thereto, such refund shall be made on the apportioned quarterly fee paid and unused and all remaining quarterly payments applicable to such motor vehicle shall be canceled. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions of this section, refunds shall be made under the provisions of this section only where the amount exceeds $50.
