§ I-4363. Collector's Authority to Examine Records of Transportation Companies

A. Th e collector as defined in R.S. 47:301(2), is further expanded to include additional duly authorized representatives for purposes of R.S. 47:311 and R.S. 47:337.31. Such representatives will have identification cards stating that they are authorized representatives of the collector with the power and authority as provided in Chapters 18 and 2D, Title 47, Louisiana Revised Statutes.

B. Under these Sections, specific authorization is granted to the collector to examine all pertinent books, records, and other documents of all transportation companies, agencies, or firms operating in the taxing jurisdiction in order to gather information necessary to determine what dealers are importing or are otherwise shipping articles of tangible personal property subject to state and local sales or use tax. The collector or his assigned agents are expected to notify the transportation companies at a reasonable time in advance and to conduct the investigation during reasonable hours and with a minimum of difficulty to the transportation companies. The transportation companies, in turn, are expected to cooperate with the agents, furnishing all records required as well as reasonable working surroundings and conditions.

C. Failure to permit such an investigation will force the collector to proceed by rule against the company, in term time or in vacation, in any court of competent jurisdiction in the parish where such refusals occurred to show cause why the collector should not be permitted to examine books, records or other documents.
