The tax or proof of exemption may be transmitted to 24 the Department by way of the State agency with which, or 25 State officer with whom, the tangible personal property must 26 be titled or registered if the Department and that agency or 27 State officer determine that this procedure will expedite the 28 processing of applications for title or registration. 29 The Department shall have full power to administer and 30 enforce this Section to collect all taxes, penalties and 31 interest due hereunder, to dispose of taxes, penalties and 32 interest so collected in the manner hereinafter provided, and 33 determine all rights to credit memoranda or refunds arising 34 on account of the erroneous payment of tax, penalty or SB2319 Engrossed -3- LRB9213656SMpk 1 interest hereunder.
