§2248. Modification of contribution report

            A. If a disposer or generator has timely filed the contribution report required in R.S. 30:2245 and if he has complete and accurate records for 1981, 1982, 1983, and the first six months of 1984, the secretary may, upon the filing by the disposer or generator of a detailed request with supporting documentation on or before October 1, 1984, consider and allow modifications of the contribution reports if the disposer or generator shows, to the satisfaction of the secretary according to standards included in the rules and regulations promulgated by the secretary, that the contribution report does not accurately reflect the extent of his contribution to the hazardous waste content of land, provided that this Subsection shall not allow an adjustment to reduce a disposer's or generator's contribution because of disposal or generation by a predecessor at the same site.

            B. The secretary may make any reasonable and necessary modifications or adjustments to the contribution report which will increase the contribution of hazardous waste attributable to any disposer or generator if the secretary determines that the increase will more accurately reflect the extent of the disposer's or generator's contribution to the hazardous waste content of land in Louisiana based on the disposal or generation of hazardous waste by the disposer or generator or his predecessor at the same site.

            C.(1) After all adjustments provided for in this Chapter, the total amount of dry weight tons contributed by any disposer or generator to the hazardous waste content of Louisiana lands shall be reduced by the total amount of dry weight tons of hazardous wastes generated or disposed because of an order by the secretary, the secretary of the Department of Energy and Natural Resources, or a court, ordering the cleanup of any abandoned waste site where the parties held responsible for the waste at the site are bearing the cost of the cleanup.

            (2) A disposer or generator liable for the tax under this Chapter may be given a credit against his tax liability for any voluntary removal of hazardous waste from a site if there is proper documentation as to the removal and the amount removed which documentation must be approved by the secretary. If the removal occurs after the tax has been paid the taxpayer may receive a refund in the amount of the credit, upon showing of the proper documentation as required by the secretary. The credit shall be calculated by deducting the total dry weight tons removed from the total dry weight tons in the contribution report upon which the tax is based.

            D. Whenever there is a contest between the secretary and a disposer or generator as to whether any adjustment or modification should be allowed to a contribution report which is timely filed, there shall be a rebuttable presumption that the original contribution report provided for in R.S. 30:2245 is correct.
