The tax or proof of exemption may be transmitted to 22 the Department by way of the State agency with which, or 23 State officer with whom, the tangible personal property must 24 be titled or registered if the Department and that agency or 25 State officer determine that this procedure will expedite the 26 processing of applications for title or registration. 27 The Department shall have full power to administer and 28 enforce this Section to collect all taxes, penalties and 29 interest due hereunder, to dispose of taxes, penalties and 30 interest so collected in the manner hereinafter provided, and 31 determine all rights to credit memoranda or refunds arising 32 on account of the erroneous payment of tax, penalty or 33 interest hereunder.
