The taxes imposed by this article on any sale or transfer executed or effected within this state by any person, firm, corporation, company or association required to be registered with the attorney general of the state of New York as a dealer in securities, other than upon any such exchange, may also be paid without the use of the stamps prescribed by this article, under such rules and regulations as the tax commission may prescribe, to any agency duly authorized by the tax commission or to the tax commission, by the person, firm, company, corporation or association executing or effecting such sale or transfer without the use of the stamps prescribed by this article. In such event, a written report shall be made to such exchange located within this state, affiliated clearing corporation, authorized agency or the tax commission for each business day or such period as the tax commission may prescribe, by each such person, corporation, firm, company or association showing the amount of tax payable on all transactions taxable under this article and such other reasonable information as the tax commission may prescribe, provided, however, that if such taxes are paid through such exchange located within this state or its affiliated clearing corporation by a member of a qualified securities exchange, such written report shall be made to the qualified securities exchange or qualified clearing corporation, and such qualified securities exchange or qualified clearing corporation shall render a report to such exchange located within this state or its affiliated clearing corporation through which such taxes are paid showing the amount of tax payable on all transactions taxable under this article and such other reasonable information as the tax commission may prescribe. Such reports shall be preserved for such period as the tax commission may prescribe. At the time of making such reports, the amount of tax shown to be due thereon shall be paid to the tax commission or for the account of the tax commission to or through such exchange located within this state, affiliated clearing corporation or authorized agency and shall be remitted daily, unless otherwise prescribed by the tax commission, by such exchange, affiliated clearing corporation or authorized agency to the tax commission together with a report in such form as may be prescribed by the tax commission. The payment of the tax to or through an exchange, affiliated clearing corporation, authorized agency or the tax commission on each transaction as hereinbefore provided shall be evidenced by a certification in such form and manner as the tax commission may prescribe. In the event that collection of the tax is prescribed without the use of stamps as hereinbefore provided, all of the provisions of this article not inconsistent with this section shall apply.
