1. It shall be unlawful for any person to sell motor fuel or undyed special fuel within this state or to otherwise act as a supplier, restrictive supplier, importer, exporter, dealer, or user unless the person holds an uncanceled license issued by the department. To procure a license, a supplier, restrictive supplier, importer, exporter, dealer, or user shall file with the department an application signed under penalty for false certificate setting forth and complying with all of the following:
a. The name under which the licensee will transact business in this state.
b. The location, with street number address, of the principal office or place of business of the licensee within this state.
c. The name and complete residence address of the owner or the names and addresses of the partners, if the licensee is a partnership, or the names and addresses of the principal officers, if the licensee is a corporation or association.
d. A dealer's or user's license shall be required for each separate place of business or location where compressed natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas is delivered or placed into the fuel supply tank of a motor vehicle.
e. An applicant for an exporter's license shall provide verification as required by the department that the applicant has the appropriate license valid in the state or states into which the motor fuel or undyed special fuel will be exported.
2. a. The department may deny the issuance of a license to an applicant who is substantially delinquent in the payment of a tax due, or the interest or penalty on the tax, administered by the department. If the applicant is a partnership, a license may be denied if a partner owes any delinquent tax, interest, or penalty. If the applicant is a corporation, a license may be denied if any officer having a substantial legal or equitable interest in the ownership of the corporation owes any delinquent tax, interest, or penalty of the applicant corporation.
b. The department may deny the issuance of a license if an application for a license to transact business as a supplier, restrictive supplier, importer, exporter, dealer, or user in this state is filed by a person whose license or registration has been canceled for cause at any time under the provisions of this chapter or any prior motor fuel tax law, if the department has reason to believe that the application is not filed in good faith, or if the application is filed by some person as a subterfuge for the real person in interest whose license or registration has been canceled for cause under the provisions of this chapter or any prior motor fuel tax law. The applicant shall be given fifteen days' notice in writing of the date of the hearing and shall have the right to appear in person or by counsel and present testimony.
3. a. The application in proper form having been accepted for filing, and the other conditions and requirements of this section and division IV having been complied with, the department shall issue to the applicant a license to transact business as a supplier, restrictive supplier, importer, exporter, dealer, or user in this state. The license shall remain in full force and effect until canceled as provided in this chapter.
b. The license shall not be assignable and shall be valid only for the licensee in whose name it is issued.
c. The department shall keep and file all applications and bonds and a record of all licensees.
