    Sec. 1. Every user who reimbursed a retailer for Illinois or municipal or county retailers' occupation tax or paid use tax on the amount of the Federal excise tax on manufacturers of motor vehicles when purchasing a motor vehicle in Illinois between August 16, 1971, and December 10, 1971, upon proving to the Department of Revenue (hereinafter called the Department) that such user has received a refund of such Federal excise tax, may, prior to July 1, 1976, file a claim directly with the Department to recover the amount of such use tax or reimbursement for retailers' occupation tax or municipal retailers' occupation tax or county retailers' occupation tax. The Department shall prescribe the claim form and shall establish the necessary procedures for processing such claim. After making any such refund, if the Department finds that the retailer who collected such tax or reimbursement therefor from the user did not remit such tax to the Department, it shall collect the tax from such retailer. For this purpose, all the provisions of Sections 4, 5, 5a, 5b, 5c, 5d, 5e, 5f, 5g, 5h, 5i, and 5j of the "Retailers' Occupation Tax Act", approved June 28, 1933, as now or hereafter amended, shall apply to the subject matter of this Act to the same extent as if such provisions were included herein.
