Such tax shall be paid at the time of the registration of such recreational vehicle.

(b) Except as provided in subsection (e), the tax upon a recreational vehicle, which replaces a recreational 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 recreational 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 recreational vehicle for the full registration year multiplied by the number of full calendar months remaining in the registration year for such recreational vehicle, exceeds (2) one-twelfth of the tax which would have been due for the full registration year upon the recreational 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 K.S.A. 79-5118 to 79-5125, inclusive, and amendments thereto, has been paid upon any recreational 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 recreational vehicle for the full registration year, multiplied by the number of full calendar months remaining in such registration year. Whenever the tax imposed under K.S.A. 79-5118 to 79-5125, inclusive, and amendments thereto, upon any replacement recreational vehicle for the remainder of the registration year is less than the tax paid on the recreational 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 recreational vehicles imposed by K.S.A. 79-5118 to 79-5125, inclusive, and amendments thereto, which have not been distributed.

No such refund shall be allowed unless and until the owner submits to the county treasurer evidence of a valid driver's license and recreational 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 recreational vehicles which have not been distributed. No refund shall be made for a sum less than $5.
