Subsection 31A-3-303(2) requires the Insurance Commissioner to write rules to prescribe accounting and reporting forms and procedures to be used in calculating and paying the surplus lines premium tax. Subsection 31A-15-103(11)(d) requires the Insurance Commissioner to write rules to specify the stamping fee amount and how it is to be collected.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
The Department of Insurance has received no written comments regarding this rule during the past five years.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
This rule provides procedures and reporting forms to be used by insurers, brokers, and policyholders in calculating tax due. As a result of the regulation, all who charge the tax use the same calculation to determine the amount of the fee. It makes the payment uniform and fair. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
