deducted from the sale may, by application in writing to the board, secure
a refund in the amount deducted. The refund shall be payable only when
the application has been made to the board within 60 days after the deduction.
Interest shall be allowed and paid at the rate of 6% per annum upon the
total amount of such assessment imposed by this Act, except that if any
such assessment is refunded within 90 days after an application for refund
has been made within the required 60 days after deduction or within 90 days
after the first purchaser of sheep and/or wool remits the assessments withheld
and deducted to the sheep and wool production development and marketing
board, whichever is later, no interest shall be allowed on such assessment.
Each application for refund by a producer shall have attached thereto proof
of assessment deducted.
