V.
(1) In addition to the definition of "dealer" as provided in R.S. 47:301(4) for purposes of the consumer use tax, the term "dealer" includes every person who manufactures or produces tangible personal property for sale at retail, for use or consumption, or distribution, or for storage to be used or consumed in a taxing jurisdiction. "Dealer" is further defined to mean:
(a) Any person engaging in business in the taxing jurisdiction which shall mean the solicitation of business through an independent contractor or any other representative pursuant to an agreement with a Louisiana resident or business under which the resident or business, for a commission, referral fee, or other consideration of any kind, directly or indirectly, refers potential customers, whether by link on an internet website, an in-person oral presentation, telemarketing, or otherwise to the seller. If the cumulative gross receipts from sales of tangible personal property to customers in this state who are referred to the person through such an agreement exceeds fifty thousand dollars during the preceding twelve months, the presumption regarding the status of that person as a dealer may be rebutted if the person can demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the secretary, that he cannot reasonably be expected to have gross receipts in excess of fifty thousand dollars for the succeeding twelve months.
(b) Any person selling tangible personal property or services, the use of which is taxed pursuant to this Chapter, who:
(i) Sells the same or a substantially similar line of products as a Louisiana retailer under the same or substantially similar business name, using the same trademarks, service marks, or trade names that are the same or substantially similar to those used by the Louisiana retailer.
(ii) Solicits business and develops and maintains a market in Louisiana through an agent, salesman, independent contractor, solicitor, or other representative pursuant to an agreement with a Louisiana resident or business, hereinafter referred to collectively as an "affiliated agent", under which the affiliated agent, for a commission, referral fee, or other consideration of any kind engages in activities in this state that inure to the benefit of the person in the person's development or maintenance of a market for its goods or services in the state, to the extent that those activities of the affiliated agent are sufficient to satisfy the nexus requirement of the United States Constitution. For purposes of this Subparagraph, such activities of the affiliated agent shall include referral of potential customers to the person, either directly or indirectly, whether by link on an internet website or otherwise.
(c) In addition to those persons established as dealers according to Subparagraph (b) of this Paragraph, the provisions of this Subsection shall be presumed by a taxing authority to apply to any person who holds a substantial ownership interest, directly or through a subsidiary, in a retailer maintaining sales locations in Louisiana, or to any person who is owned in whole or in substantial part by a retailer maintaining sales locations in Louisiana, or by a parent or subsidiary thereof. For purposes of this Paragraph, "substantial ownership interest" means affiliated persons with respect to each other where one of such persons has an ownership interest of more than five percent, whether direct or indirect, in the other, or where an ownership interest of more than five percent, whether direct or indirect, is held in each of such persons by another person or by a group of other persons which are affiliated persons with respect to each other.
(2) A dealer, as defined in and for the purposes of this Subsection, shall file all applicable sales and use tax returns and remittances through the electronic filing options available for such purposes. If neither the dealer nor any of its affiliates as defined in R.S. 47:340.1 meet the economic nexus thresholds set forth in R.S. 47:301(4)(m)(i)(aa) or (bb), the dealer may collect the tax authorized by Paragraph (K)(5) of this Section. If either the dealer or any of its affiliates as defined in R.S. 47:340.1 meet the economic nexus thresholds set forth in R.S. 47:301(4)(m)(i)(aa) or (bb), the dealer shall collect state and local sales and use tax on remote sales for delivery into the state and remit to the Louisiana Sales and Use Tax Commission for Remote Sellers.
(3) The provisions of this Subsection holding that certain business activities conducted by certain persons establishes the person as a dealer for the purposes of sales and use tax levied by the state shall not be used in the determination of whether such persons are liable for the payment of income and franchise taxes levied by the state.
W.
(1) Nothing in Subsection K of this Section shall prohibit a taxpayer from electing to separately file with the applicable parish sales and use tax collector or central collection commission a use tax return and to remit the correct and full amount of use tax due pursuant to the provisions of all applicable local ordinances, hereinafter referred to as "paid local use tax return".
(2) If a dealer has withheld and remitted tax for a specific purchase pursuant to the provisions of Subsection K of this Section from a taxpayer who subsequently files a paid use local tax return, the taxpayer may file an annual use tax refund request with the secretary, hereinafter referred to as "refund request".
(3) A refund request shall be filed in a manner to be determined by the secretary, which may include electronic filing. The refund request may be made once per calendar year, and shall be accompanied by all relevant paid local use tax returns. If the delivery and use of the taxable property will occur in a parish in which there is no sales and use tax imposed by any local taxing authority, an affidavit confirming such will be accepted in lieu of paid local use tax returns.
(4) The secretary shall pay any refund due pursuant to this Subsection from current collections of any tax levied pursuant to Subsection K of this Section.
(5) The denial of any refund, or the failure to act within one year of the filing of the refund request, shall be appealable in the same manner as is provided for in R.S. 47:1625.
(6) Until the Louisiana Sales and Use Tax Commission for Remote Sellers enforces collection and remittance of state and local sales and use tax based on the applicable state and local rates and bases, dealers as defined in R.S. 47:301(4)(m) shall specifically collect the additional tax authorized by Subsection K of this Section and shall file all applicable sales and use tax returns.

Section 5 of Acts 2001, No. 1175, provides that "The intent of this Act is to amend Louisiana law so that it conforms to the federal Mobile Telecommunications Sourcing Act, P.L. 106-252, codified at 4 U.S.C., Sections 116 through 126. If it is determined by the legislative oversight committees of the Department of Revenue, which are set forth in R.S. 49:968, that a court of competent jurisdiction has entered a final judgment on the merits that (1) is based on federal or state law; (2) is no longer subject to appeal; and (3) substantially limits or impairs the essential elements of Section 1 or 2 of this Act, then the provisions enacted by such Sections shall be repealed, and Sections 3 and 4 of this Act shall be effective, all as of the date of entry of such judgment."
