or first identifies the debt as one described in section 6(4)(b), whichever
is earlier, or 

                         (ii) in the case of a refund referred to in
section 6.1, the agent or retailer, as the case may be, first becomes aware
of the circumstances referred to in section 6.1 that entitle the agent or
retailer to a refund.

     (2)  The Provincial Treasurer may, with respect to an application for
a refund under sections 6 and 6.1, request additional evidence establishing

after first becoming aware of circumstances that entitle that person to a
refund, report those circumstances in writing to the Provincial Treasurer.

     (4)  Even if an applicant for a refund does not comply with
subsection (3), the Provincial Treasurer may grant the refund if, in the
Provincial Treasurer's opinion, the failure to comply does not prevent the
Provincial Treasurer from collecting the tax from another person.

LPG refunds

petroleum gas on which there is no tax payable by the consumer, the seller
may apply to the Provincial Treasurer for a refund of an amount by which

petroleum gas to the seller in that period exceeds the amount of tax
collected by the seller on liquid petroleum gas from consumers in that
period.

     (2)  An application for a refund under this section must

               (a)  be made using electronic media of a type or class

refund under this section, request additional evidence establishing the
seller's entitlement to the refund.

     (5)  The Provincial Treasurer shall, as soon as possible, review the
application for a refund under this section and shall, as soon as possible,
make the refund, unless the Provincial Treasurer is of the opinion that the
quantity of non-taxable sales of liquid petroleum gas reported by the
seller is unreasonable in the circumstances.

     (6)  If the Provincial Treasurer refuses to refund all or a portion
of a refund for which application is made under this section, the
Provincial Treasurer shall immediately notify the applicant of the amount
the Provincial Treasurer refuses to refund and the reasons for the refusal.

in part as directed by the Superintendent.
