79-5107. Taxation of motor vehicles; computation of tax; due date; refunds; exemption of military personnel vehicles. (a) Except as provided in subsection (e), the tax imposed by this act upon any motor vehicle, other than a motor vehicle which replaces a motor vehicle previously registered and taxed in this state and to which registration plates are transferred, which has been acquired, or brought into the state, or for any other reason becomes subject to registration after the owner's regular annual motor vehicle registration date, shall become due and payable at the time such motor vehicle becomes subject to registration under the laws of this state and the amount of tax to be paid by the owner for the remainder of the tax year shall be an amount which is equal to 1/12 of the tax which would have been due upon such motor vehicle for the full registration year, multiplied by the number of full calendar months remaining in the registration year of the owner of such vehicle. Such tax shall be paid at the time of the registration of such motor vehicle.

(b) Except as provided in subsection (e), the tax upon a motor vehicle, which replaces a motor vehicle previously registered and taxed in this state and to which registration plates are transferred, which is registered at any time other than the annual registration date prescribed by law for the registration of such motor vehicle, shall be in an amount equal to the amount by which: (1) One-twelfth of the tax which would have been due upon such replacement motor vehicle for the full registration year multiplied by the number of full calendar months remaining in the registration year for such motor vehicle, exceeds (2) one-twelfth of the tax which would have been due for the full registration year upon the motor vehicle replaced multiplied by the number of full calendar months remaining in such registration year. Such tax shall be paid at the time of registration of such replacement vehicle.

(c) Whenever the tax imposed under this act has been paid upon any motor vehicle and title to such vehicle is transferred and no replacement vehicle is substituted therefor such taxpayer shall be entitled to a refund in an amount equal to 1/12 of the tax due upon such motor vehicle for the full registration year, multiplied by the number of full calendar months remaining in such registration year. Whenever the tax imposed under this act upon any replacement motor vehicle for the remainder of the registration year is less than the tax paid on the motor vehicle replaced for the remainder of such registration year, the taxpayer shall be entitled to a refund in the amount by which the tax paid upon the vehicle replaced exceeds the tax due upon the replacement vehicle. All refunds shall be paid by the county treasurer from the moneys received from taxes upon motor vehicles imposed by this act which have not been distributed. No refund shall be made under the authority of this subsection for a sum less than $5.

(d) Whenever the tax imposed under this act has been paid upon any motor vehicle and the owner thereof has established residence in another state during such vehicle's registration year, such owner shall be entitled to a refund of such taxes in an amount equal to 1/12 of the tax paid upon such motor vehicle for the full registration year, multiplied by the number of full calendar months remaining in such registration year after the month of establishing residence in another state. No such refund shall be allowed unless and until the owner submits to the county treasurer evidence of a valid driver's license and motor vehicle registration in another state, and surrenders the Kansas license plate. All refunds shall be paid by the county treasurer from the moneys received from taxes upon motor vehicles which have not been distributed. No refund shall be made for a sum less than $5.

(e) (1) No tax shall be levied under the provisions of this act upon not more than two motor vehicles which are owned by a resident individual:
