If any motor carrier protesting the taxes shall fail to commence an action in some court of competent jurisdiction for the recovery of the taxes protested within the time herein prescribed, such protest shall become null and void and of no effect whatsoever and upon any such failure the director of accounts and reports shall transfer such protested tax money from the impounded fund to the state general fund.
No action shall be brought or maintainable in any court for the recovery of the taxes paid under protest unless the same is commenced within 30 days after the filing of such protest with the director of property valuation.
