(a) An applicant requesting a reassessment of the fee imposed under Health and Safety Code section 105310 shall submit an application to the Department which contains:
(1) A statement or statements, made under penalty of perjury, which demonstrates the applicant's entitlement to a reassessed fee, and which includes a statement that the applicant has paid in full any and all fees assessed by the Board of Equalization pursuant to this Chapter. The sworn statement(s) shall also contain the basis of knowledge for making the statements contained therein.
(2) Records identifying the total gallons of motor vehicle fuel distributed by the applicant in or about 1991 or the total gallons of architectural coatings distributed by the applicant in or about 1978. Records, such as sales data, annual reports, or other information, shall be submitted in duplicate with a sworn statement under penalty of perjury establishing the reliability and completeness of the records, including a description of their mode of preparation and maintenance. Any records, or portion thereof, which the applicant wants to protect as a trade secret shall be submitted in a separate sealed envelope clearly marked on the outside as "Trade Secret Material."

History: New article 4 (section 33050) and section filed 8-22-2002; operative 8-22-2002 pursuant to Government Code section 11343.4 (Register 2002, No. 34).
¹ When the basis for application of the fee on motor vehicle fuel distributors and architectural coatings distributors changed, as of July 19, 2001, from gallons distributed by the feepayer two years prior to the year the fee was assessed (e.g., gallons distributed in 1991 reported April 1, 1993), to the feepayer's market share of gallons distributed in 1991 and 1978, respectively, the calendar year 2000 was no longer relevant to any fee calculation for motor vehicle fuel distributors and architectural coatings distributors.
