(1) The vendor or seller collected the tax at the immediately preceding rate, and
(2) The vendor or seller's failure to collect the tax at the new rate does not extend beyond thirty days after the enactment of the new rate.
(B) The relief in paragraph (A) of this rule will not apply to a vendor or seller that fraudulently fails to collect tax at the new rate or solicits purchasers based on the immediately preceding rate.
