(6) Truck chassis, bodies, and semitrailers used for further manufacture. If–
(A) the tax imposed by section 4051 [26 USCS § 4051] has been paid with respect to the sale of any article, and
(B) before any other use, such article is by any person used as a component part of another article taxable under section 4051 [26 USCS § 4051] manufactured or produced by him,such tax shall be deemed to be an overpayment by such person. For purposes of the preceding sentence, an article shall be treated as having been used as a component part of another article if, had it not been broken or rendered useless in the manufacture or production of such other article, it would have been so used.
This subsection shall apply in respect of an article only if the exportation or use referred to in the applicable provision of this subsection occurs before any other use, or, in the case of a sale or resale, the use referred to in the applicable provision of this subsection is to occur before any other use.
(c) Refund to exporter or shipper. Under regulations prescribed by the Secretary the amount of any tax imposed by chapter 31, or chapter 32 [26 USCS §§ 4001 et seq. or 4064 et seq.] erroneously or illegally collected in respect of any article exported to a foreign country or shipped to a possession of the United States may be refunded to the exporter or shipper thereof, if the person who paid such tax waives his claim to such amount.
(d) Credit on returns. Any person entitled to a refund of tax imposed by chapter 31 or 32 [26 USCS §§ 4001 et seq. or 4064 et seq.], paid to the Secretary may, instead of filing a claim for refund, take credit therefor against taxes imposed by such chapter due on any subsequent return. The preceding sentence shall not apply to the tax imposed by section 4081 [26 USCS § 4081] in the case of refunds described in section 4081(e) [26 USCS § 4081(e)].
(e) Accounting procedures for like articles. Under regulations prescribed by the Secretary, if any person uses or resells like articles, then for purposes of this section the manufacturer, producer, or importer of any such article may be identified, and the amount of tax paid under chapter 32 [26 USCS §§ 4064 et seq.] in respect of such article may be determined–
(1) on a first-in-first-out basis,
(2) on a last-in-first-out basis, or
(3) in accordance with any other consistent method approved by the Secretary.
(f) Meaning of terms. For purposes of this section, any term used in this section has the same meaning as when used in chapter 31, 32, or 33 [26 USCS §§ 4001 et seq., 4064 et seq., or 4251 et seq.], as the case may be.
(a) Credit or refund generally. No overpayment of tax imposed by chapter 35 [26 USCS §§ 4401 et seq.] shall be credited or refunded (otherwise than under subsection (b)), in pursuance of a court decision or otherwise, unless the person who paid the tax establishes, in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Secretary, (1) that he has not collected (whether as a separate charge or otherwise) the amount of the tax from the person who placed the wager on which the tax was imposed, or (2) that he has repaid the amount of the tax to the person who placed such wager, or unless he files with the Secretary written consent of the person who placed such wager to the allowance of the credit or the making of the refund. In the case of any laid-off wager, no overpayment of tax imposed by chapter 35 [26 USCS §§ 4401 et seq.] shall be so credited or refunded to the person with whom such laid-off wager was placed unless he establishes, in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Secretary, that the provisions of the preceding sentence have been complied with both with respect to the person who placed the laid-off wager with him and with respect to the person who placed the original wager.
