Collection of taxes.
(a) The governing body of the county shall administer and collect the taxes herein authorized to be levied and collected, or shall cause such taxes to be administered and collected, pursuant to, and in accordance with, applicable provisions of Sections 11-3-11.2 and 11-3-11.3. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the governing body shall have the same rights, remedies, power, and authority, including the right to adopt and implement the same procedures, as would be available to the State Department of Revenue if the taxes herein authorized were being administered, enforced, and collected by the State Department of Revenue. The governing body may retain, as its fee for the cost of collecting all such taxes, an amount not to exceed three percent of the proceeds of all such taxes, or the county's actual cost of collection, whichever is less.
(b) With respect to the taxes herein authorized to be levied by it, the county shall be deemed to be a self-administered county, as that term is defined in Section 40-2A-3.
