In the event that any license is canceled by the department as provided in this section, and in the further event that the licensee shall have paid to the state all fuel taxes due and payable by it under the laws of this state, together with any and all penalties and interest accruing by reason of any failure on the part of the licensee to make accurate reports or to pay said tax, interest, and penalties, the department shall cancel and surrender the bond held on file by the department.
