12-199. Imposition of city and county compensating use tax upon certain motor vehicles; rate; administration, collections and distribution. (a) A compensating use tax for the privilege of using or storing within a city or county any vehicle which is required to be registered under the provisions of article 1 of chapter 8 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, and which is purchased within this state but without the local retailers' sales taxing jurisdiction of such city or county, is hereby imposed by every city or county imposing a retailers' sales tax. The rate of any such tax shall be equal to the difference between the aggregate rate of all local retailers' sales tax rates imposed by all local retailers sales taxing jurisdictions of the situs of such vehicle less the aggregate rate of all local retailers' sales tax rates imposed by all local retailers' sales taxing jurisdictions of the situs of the purchase of such vehicle. Except as otherwise provided in this section, any city or county imposing a compensating use tax is prohibited from administering such tax locally, but shall utilize the services of the state department of revenue to administer and enforce such tax. All laws and rules and regulations of the state department of revenue relating to the Kansas compensating tax shall apply to such local compensating use tax insofar as the same may be made applicable. Such tax shall be collected by the county treasurer at the time the vehicle is registered in this state following a sale occurring within this state. Registration of such vehicle within a taxing jurisdiction shall be deemed to constitute use or storage thereof for compensating tax purposes and the residence or place of business of the applicant shall be deemed to be the situs of such use or storage for purposes of the collection and distribution thereof.
(b) The secretary of revenue is authorized to administer and enforce a city's or county's compensating use tax and to adopt such rules and regulations necessary for the efficient and effective administration, enforcement and collection thereof.
(c) All revenue received by any county treasurer from a countywide compensating use tax shall be apportioned among the county and each city located in such county in the same manner as provided in K.S.A. 12-192, and amendments thereto, for the apportionment of revenue received from a countywide retailers' sales tax, and all revenue received from a city compensating use tax shall be remitted at least quarterly to the treasurer of such city.
