Section 2-8-283

Refund of assessment to purchaser of catfish feed.

Any purchaser of catfish feed against which any assessment is made under authority of this article, if dissatisfied with said assessment, shall have the right to demand and receive from the treasurer of the certified association a refund of the amount of the assessment collected from such purchaser of catfish feed, if such demand for refund is made in writing within 30 days from the date on which such assessment was made on the sale price of catfish feed. Applications for refunds of amounts deducted from the sale price of any catfish feed sold must give the name and address of the distributor of catfish feed who sold the feed, date of purchase, invoice number, if any and the number of tons purchased from him for which the assessment was made. Within 30 days after the first quarterly receipt of funds from the Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries, and thereafter within 30 days after receipt of such application, the certified association shall, after such association determines that the assessment was paid as claimed in the application, refund the amount so paid as an assessment. The mailing by the association of a valid check in the amount of such assessment, payable to purchaser, within 30 days after receipt of the application for refund, shall constitute a compliance with this section.
