The supplemental fee shall apply to each location for which the applicant proposes to do business under the license. The supplemental fee for an existing licensee shall be equal to the average gross sales for each of the licensee's existing licensed locations during the twelve months immediately preceding the month in which the application is submitted. The supplemental fee for an applicant who does not have any licensed locations from which to derive average gross sales data shall be equal to the average gross sales of the geographically nearest three licensees. The fee shall be remitted in twelve equal installments beginning on July 31 and on the last day of each month during the fiscal year. The fee imposed pursuant to this proviso is necessary to fund additional law enforcement, regulatory measures, health care costs, and associated impacts on the health, safety, and welfare of the State's residents resulting from the anticipated additional sales of liquor. /
