(3)           When equipment is added to a particular class after January 1st of any licensing year, the same percent used at the beginning of that licensing year (January 1st) shall be used to determine the portion of the new vehicles to be registered in North Carolina.

(c)  A record of unit number, identification, declared gross weight, miles traveled, monthly  inventory  (motor vehicle) records, North Carolina license number and date license purchased shall be retained for three years.
