REVENUE AND TAXATION
63-3628. Successors’ liability. (a) If any vendor liable for any amount under this act sells out his business or stock of goods, the vendee shall make inquiry of the state tax commission and withhold from the purchase price any amount of tax that may be due under this act until such time as the vendor produces a receipt stating that no amount is due.
(b) If the purchaser of a business or stock of goods fails to withhold from the purchase price as above required, he becomes personally liable for the payment of the amount required to be withheld by him to the extent of the purchase price valued in money.
(c) The state tax commission shall, as soon as practicable after receiving written inquiry as to the amount due and no later than thirty (30) days after receipt of the inquiry or, if necessary, thirty (30) days from the date the vendor’s records are made available for audit, but in any event no later than sixty (60) days after receiving the inquiry, issue a statement to the purchaser setting forth the amount of tax due by the vendor, if any. Failure of the state tax commission to issue such statement will release the purchaser from any obligation to withhold from the purchase price as above required.
