(b) If the producer and collecting person are the same legal entity, or if the producer retains ownership after processing, the collecting person shall collect the assessment directly from the producer at the time of processing/sale.

(c) The secretary-treasurer of the Council, by registered or certified mail, shall notify each known collection point of the duty to collect the assessment, the manner in which the assessment is to be collected, and the date on or after which the collection point is to begin collecting the assessment.

(d) The amount of the assessment collected shall be clearly shown on the sales invoice or other document evidencing the transaction. The collecting person shall furnish a copy of the document to the producer.

(e) Unless otherwise provided by the original referendum, no later than the 15th day of each month, the collection point shall remit the amount collected during the previous month to the secretary-treasurer of the Council, along with a completed form prescribed by the board reflecting such amount.

(f) The timeliness of a payment to the Council shall be based on the applicable postmark date or the date actually received by the Council, whichever is earlier.
