(3) Bad debts associated with accounts receivable which have been assigned or sold with recourse are eligible upon reassignment for inclusion by the dealer in the credit or refund authorized by this section.

(b) For purposes of determining the amount of bad debt that is attributable to the state or to a local jurisdiction, a dealer may employ a proportionate allocation method based on current gross taxes due or another reasonable allocation method approved by the department.
