SECTION 36.     AMENDATORY     68 O.S. 2001, Section 3905, as amended by Section 4, Chapter 308, O.S.L. 2002 (68 O.S. Supp. 2005, Section 3905), is amended to read as follows:

Section 3905.  A.  1.  Beginning with the first complete calendar quarter after the application of the establishment is approved by the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, the establishment shall begin filing quarterly reports with the Oklahoma Tax Commission that specify the actual number and individual gross taxable payroll of new direct jobs for the establishment and such other information as required by the Tax Commission.  In no event shall the first claim for incentive payments be filed later than three (3) years from the start date designated by the Department.  The Tax Commission shall verify the actual individual gross taxable payroll for new direct jobs.  If the Tax Commission is not able to provide such verification utilizing all available resources, the Tax Commission may request additional information from the establishment as may be necessary or may request the establishment to revise its reports.

The establishment shall continue filing such reports during the seven-year incentive period or until it is no longer qualified to receive incentive payments.  Such reports shall constitute a claim for quarterly incentive payments by the establishment.

2.  Upon receipt of a report for the initial calendar quarter of the incentive period and for each subsequent calendar quarter thereafter, the Tax Commission shall determine if the establishment has met the following requirements:

a. created and or maintained the minimum number of new direct jobs as specified in paragraph 3 of subsection C of Section 3904 of this title, and

b. paid the individuals it employed in new direct jobs an annualized wage which equaled or exceeded the applicable percentage of the average county wage as that percentage was determined by the Oklahoma Department of Commerce upon approval of the application.

3.  Upon determining that an establishment has met the requirements of paragraph 2 of this subsection for the initial calendar quarter of the incentive period, the Tax Commission shall issue a warrant to the establishment in an amount which shall be equal to the net benefit rate multiplied by the amount of gross taxable payroll of new direct jobs actually paid by the establishment. B. Except as provided in subsection C of this section, the quarterly incentive payment provided for in subsection A of this section shall be allowed in each of the twenty-seven subsequent calendar quarters.

C.  1. An establishment which does not meet the requirements of paragraph 2 of subsection A of this section within twelve (12) months of the date of its application shall be ineligible to receive any incentive payments pursuant to its application and approval. 2.  An establishment which at any time during the twenty-seven subsequent calendar quarters does not meet the requirements of paragraph 2 of subsection A of this section shall be ineligible to receive an incentive payment during the calendar quarter in which such requirements are not met.
