Tax on new tire sales.
65-3424d. Tax on new tire sales. (a) In addition to any other tax imposed upon the retail sale of new vehicle tires, there is hereby imposed on retail sales of new vehicle tires (excluding innertubes), including new tires mounted on a vehicle sold at retail for the first time, an excise tax of $.25 per vehicle tire. Such tax shall be paid by the purchaser of such tires and collected by the retailer thereof.
(b) The tax imposed by this section collected by the retailer shall become due and payable as follows: When the total tax for which any retailer is liable under this act does not exceed the sum of $80 in any calendar year, the retailer shall file an annual return on or before January 25 of the following year; when the total tax liability does not exceed $1,600 in any calendar year, the retailer shall file returns quarterly on or before the 25th day of the month following the end of each calendar quarter; when the total tax liability exceeds $1,600 in any calendar year, the retailer shall file a return for each month on or before the 25th day of the following month. Each person collecting the tax imposed pursuant to this section shall make a true report to the department of revenue, on a form prescribed by the secretary of revenue, providing such information as may be necessary to determine the amounts of taxes due and payable hereunder for the applicable month or months, which report shall be accompanied by the tax disclosed thereby. Records of sales of new tires shall be kept separate and apart from the records of other retail sales made by the person charged to collect the tax imposed pursuant to this section in order to facilitate the examination of books and records as provided herein.
(c) The secretary of revenue or the secretary's authorized representative shall have the right at all reasonable times during business hours to make such examination and inspection of the books and records of the person required to collect the tax imposed pursuant to this section as may be necessary to determine the accuracy of such reports required hereunder.
(d) The secretary of revenue is hereby authorized to administer and collect the tax imposed by this section and to adopt such rules and regulations as may be necessary for the efficient and effective administration and enforcement of the collection thereof. Whenever any person liable to collect the taxes imposed hereunder refuses or neglects to pay them, the amount, including any penalty, shall be collected in the manner prescribed for the collection of the retailers' sales tax by K.S.A. 79-3617, and amendments thereto.
(e) The secretary of revenue shall remit all revenue collected under the provisions of this section to the state treasurer in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the waste tire management fund.
(f) Whenever, in the judgment of the secretary of revenue, it is necessary, in order to secure the collection of any taxes, penalties or interest due, or to become due, under the provisions of this act, the secretary may require any person charged with the collection of such tax to file a bond with the director of taxation under conditions established by and in such form and amount as prescribed by rules and regulations adopted by the secretary.
(g) The secretary of revenue and the secretary of health and environment shall cooperate to: (1) Ensure that retailers required to collect the tax imposed by this section collect such tax on sales of tires for all vehicles, as defined by K.S.A. 65-3424, and amendments thereto; and (2) develop and distribute to tire retailers educational materials that emphasize appropriate waste tire management practices.
