Does a taxpayer have to opt-in with the Department each year?

The election for administration by the Department automatically renews each year unless the taxpayer notifies the Department and the municipal corporations in which it is subject to the tax that it is terminating the election.  The taxpayer must terminate the election by the first day of the third month of the taxpayer's taxable year.
