Except as provided in subsection 2 of this section, the same sales tax permit, exemption certificate and retail certificate required by sections 144.010 to 144.510 for the administration and collection of the state sales tax shall satisfy the requirements of sections 92.325 to 92.340, and no additional permit or exemption certificate or retail certificate shall be required; except that the director of revenue may prescribe a form of exemption certificate for an exemption from the tax imposed by sections 92.325 to 92.340.

The city shall permit the person required to remit the tax to deduct and retain an amount equal to two percent of the taxes collected. The city governing body may either require the license collector of the city to collect the tax imposed by sections 92.325 to 92.340 or may enter into an agreement with the director of revenue to have the director collect such tax on behalf of the city.
