Slates during the year ended last June Law Changes Could Help in Solving Fuel Tax Division Muddle By WILLIAM EBERLINE DES MOJNES W Out of the current controversy over operation of the Iowa motor ve hicle fuel tax division may come some changes in the law de signed to simplify the tax col lection job Legislators indicate they are not waiting for the audit of the division ordered fay Gov Her schel Loveless before preparing bills to plug whal they say arc loopholes in the law Sen Jack Schrocdcr RDav who piloted the pres ent law through the Senate in the 1957 Legislature says he has asked Slale Treasurer L Abrahamson to draw up a list oL recommendations for needed changes in the statute REP JACK MILROY RVin who led the drive for pas sage of the new law in flic 1957 House says hes studying a number of proposals to correct the gas lax law and may in troduce them soon Both Abrahamson and George Marchi ousted former director of the motor fuel tax division have complained that several provisions of thc new law hamp er enforcement officials Bui Schroeder and Milroy while conceding that some amendments may be in order say Ihe law is basically sound and much belter the one it replaced Abrahamsons action in fir ing Marchi and Gov Loveless order for a thorough audit of motor fuel tax division records by a threemember team of auditors brought into the open a long series of reports that all was not well in the division EARLIER report by the stale audilors office on a par lial audil of the division de clared there was evidence of poor supervision bad morale incompetence and carelessness The reporl said the audilors found the relationship between Marchi and Abrahamson far from accord and In firing Marchi Abraham son said the director had not straightened out the difficulty in the division as he was hired to do Abrahamson said he was assuming personal charge lo get Ihe job done Marchi replied that he nev er had been given a free hand to improve operation of the di vision He declared that five other employes fired along with him were competent and But both men criticized the new motor fuel tax law there by touching off a discussion among some officials as to whether the law or its admini stration was at fault THE STATE auditors office though conceding some changes in tiic law would he helpful said the major need was a top lo botlom reorganization of di vision personnel and establish ment of proper supervision Thc adequacy of the law has concerned legislators ever since it was passed and al the re quest of a group of Democratic senators the Iowa Legislative Research Bureau studied thc new law lo determine how it from the one it re placed The research bureaus study released last October indicated he net result of the changes made in the Jaw probably be to reduce revenues Some changes appear lo strengthen thc states position in adpiinislcririg and enforcing the law but others tend make enforcement more diffi cult the report said IT LISTED these as prob lems inherent in thc new law The law doesnt require the distributor who first receives gasoline when it comes inlo he state to pay the tax This makes it difficult to trace gaso line shipments and collect thev tax in some instances Thc stale has less control over thc licenses of distributors special fuel dealers and special fuel users than under the old law This is so because the new law requires lhc state in order to cancel a license to prove intent to evade lhc tax in cases of failure to file a correct re port or pay thc proper amount of tax Thc state has less control over bulk transporters of gaso line due to a change in the def inition of a bulk transporter Under thc old law you were a bulk transporter if you carried over 165 gallons in barrels or drums but you arenl a bulk transporter under thc new law unless you transport more than gallons FARMERS formerly could claim refunds only on gas actually used for nonhighway purposes but the new law al lows them refunds for gasoline thai was used or will be used other than in motor Thc report said this destroyed the divisions rule of Ihumb for determining when a farm ers refund claimwas obviously out of line 1 Service station regulations were eliminated in the new law freeing service station opera tors from the requirement that they be licensed This has re sulted in less control by the state over gasoline and special fuel taxes Although the new law regu lates gasoline carriers and sources it has no similar pro visionscovering carriers and sources of special fuels Diesel fuel tax enforcement is a headache all over the nation and Iowa is no exception The reason is that much diesel fuel is used for home heating and this is not subject to tax whereas the fuel sold for motor vehicle use is taxable at 7 per gallon ;
