special fuels held in any tanks by parties other than licensed dealers. Such
gasoline or special fuels having passed the statutory process of "receiving,"
the act of use, sale, distribution or delivery, on which the tax is levied, has
Section 2. An
allowance may be made by the department for a loss of "received" gasoline or
special fuels held in bulk and distribution tanks by licensed dealers from

gasoline or special fuels dealer is furnished the department.
Section 3. If, after investigation, the
losses are proved to the satisfaction of the department to have occurred the
dealer will be advised to make a deduction from subsequent monthly reports
equal to the amount of such approved losses.
