              The top portion of this return displays Return ID, Tax ID, Submission Status, Return
              Date, and Tax Period.

              Note: The Inventory Tax Rate is the difference between last year’s fuel tax rate and
              this year’s fuel tax rate from tax rate tables.

              The bottom portion of the Floor Tax Report is organized into three separate forms: a
              Return form (Figure 2), which contains inventory tax computation information, a
              Tank Storage form (Figures 3) in which fuel storage tank inventory information is
              entered, and a Registration form (Figure 225), which contains tax filer information.

              The user moves between the three forms by selecting the tabs located at the top of the
              lower section of the Floor Tax Report form.

              In order for inventory taxes to be calculated, inventories must first be entered in the
              Tank Storage form.

  The user selects the Fuel Storage form (Figure 3) by selecting the tab located at the
  top of the lower section of the Floor Tax Report.

     Figure 3 – Tank Storage form.

  In the Tank Storage form the user enters the Address of Fuel Storage, Tank Number,
  Tank Capacity, and Gasoline/Gasohol or Undyed Diesel amounts. A separate record
  must be entered for each tank.

  When the user selects Add, the system displays the added records on the lower
  portion of the form. The system also updates the corresponding Total Gallons field on
  the Return form and calculates the Inventory Tax.

  After a record has been added the user may select the record and select Remove, to
  remove it from the database.

  Note: Records will not be added until Add is selected.

        Gasoline/Gasohol, or Undyed Diesel amounts are all required fields for this

     B. An amount for both Gasoline/Gasohol and Undyed Diesel cannot be entered
        in the same record.

     C. The Tank Capacity amount must be equal to or exceed the entered fuel

     D. Negative amounts are not allowed on this form.

     E. Payment Method is a required field for this form.

  After all inventory records have been entered in the Tank Storage form, the user
  returns to the Return form (Figure 2). In the Return form the user enters Late Filing
  Fee and Interest (if required) and Payment Method.

   The Registration form (Figure 5) is a read-only form that contains filer information.

   blank, the system will prompt for the missing information.

   The user then selects a payment method (if a payment is due) or No Payment Due,

   A read-only verification screen (Figure 6) appears providing the user a last
   opportunity to verify that all information is correct before submitting.
