§ 3-10-2. Export permits Tax exemption.
Whenever a manufacturer has reason to ship any beverage out of this state and it is intended that the beverage shall be consumed beyond the borders of this state, the manufacturer may secure a shipping permit from the department of business regulation and the quantity of beverage which shall in fact be shipped out of this state and consumed beyond its borders shall not be subject to the tax imposed by this title. The department, however, is given full powers to make any investigation with respect to any shipment or shipments with a view to ascertaining whether or not the beverage securing tax exemption under this section is in fact shipped out of this state and remains permanently beyond its borders. In case any manufacturer or his or her agents, or other representatives, falsely pretend to ship beverage beyond this state for the purpose of evading the tax imposed upon that beverage by this title, his or her license issued under this title shall become void.
