1. It is unlawful for any person to deposit petroleum into a tank in this state, unless a depositor permit has been issued to that person under this section. A depositor shall file with the department an application for a permit. An application for a permit shall be made upon a form prescribed by the board and shall set forth the name under which the applicant transacts or intends to transact business, the location or locations of the applicant's place of business, and any other information as the board may require. The application shall be signed by the owner if a natural person; in the case of an association or partnership, by a member or partner; in the case of a corporation, by an executive officer or some person specifically authorized by the corporation to sign the application, to which shall be attached the written evidence of the person's authority.
2. The department may deny a permit to an applicant who is substantially delinquent in paying a tax or charge due, or the interest or penalty on the tax or charge, administered by the department at the time of application. If the applicant is a partnership, a permit may be denied if the partner is substantially delinquent in paying any delinquent tax or charge, penalty, or interest.
3. A permit is not assignable and is valid only for the person in whose name it is issued.
4. A permit issued under this chapter is valid and effective until revoked by the department.
5. If the holder of a permit fails to comply with any of the provisions of this chapter or any order or rule of the department, or rule or order of the board pursuant to this chapter, or is substantially delinquent in the payment of a tax or charge administered by the department or the interest or penalty on the tax or charge, the director may revoke the permit.
6. To revoke a permit the director shall serve notice as required by section 17A.18 to the permit holder informing that person of the director's intent to revoke the permit and of the permit holder's right to a hearing on the matter. If the permit holder petitions the director for a hearing on the proposed revocation, after giving ten days' notice of the time and place of the hearing in accordance with section 17A.18, subsection 3, the matter may be heard and a decision rendered. The director may restore permits after revocation. The director shall adopt rules setting forth the period of time a depositor must wait before a permit may be restored or a new permit may be issued. The waiting period shall not exceed ninety days from the date of the revocation of the permit.
