41-326. Licenses; term; assignability; refund of fees, when. (a) A license shall be purely a personal privilege, valid for not to exceed two years after issuance, except as otherwise provided by law, unless sooner suspended, involuntarily canceled or revoked, and shall not constitute property, nor shall it be subject to attachment, garnishment or execution, nor shall it be alienable or transferable, voluntarily or involuntarily, or subject to being encumbered or hypothecated. A license shall not descend by the laws of testate or intestate devolution but shall cease and expire upon the death of the licensee except that executors, administrators or representatives of the estate of any deceased licensee and the trustee of any insolvent or bankrupt licensee, when such estate consists in part of alcoholic liquor, may continue the business of the sale, distribution or manufacture of alcoholic liquor under order of the appropriate court and may exercise the privilege of the deceased, insolvent or bankrupt licensee after the death of such decedent, or after such insolvency or bankruptcy, until the expiration of such license but not longer than one year after the death, bankruptcy or insolvency of such licensee.
(b) When the licensee pays the full amount of the license fee upon application and is prevented from operating under such license in accordance with the provisions of this act for the entire second year of the license term, a refund shall be made of one-half of the license fee paid by such licensee. The secretary of revenue may adopt rules and regulations pursuant to K.S.A. 41-210, and amendments thereto, which provide for the authorization of refunds of one-half of the license fee paid when the licensee does not use such license for the entire second year of the license term as a result of the cancellation of the license upon the request of the licensee for voluntary reasons.
