The county treasurer shall certify to the director of revenue on or before May 1 of each year the total amount of dollars due for claims allowed.
In case of sickness, absence, or other disability of the claimant or if, in the judgment of the director of revenue, good cause exists and the claimant requests an extension, the director may extend the time for filing a claim for reimbursement or credit. However, any further time granted shall not extend beyond December 31 of the year following the year in which the claim was required to be filed. Claims filed as a result of this paragraph shall be filed with the director who shall provide for the reimbursement of the claim to the claimant.
