UNAUTHORIZED INSURERS AND SURPLUS LINES
41-1229. Tax on surplus lines. (1) On or before the first day of March of each year, each broker shall remit to the director a tax on the premiums, exclusive of sums collected to cover federal and state taxes and examination fees, on surplus line insurance subject to tax transacted by him with unauthorized insurers during the preceding calendar year as shown by his annual statement filed with the director, and at the rate of one and five-tenths percent (1.5%). Such tax shall be in lieu of all other taxes upon such insurers with respect to the business so reported.
(2) For property and casualty insurance other than worker’s compensation insurance, if Idaho is the insured’s home state, then the tax so payable shall be computed upon the entire premium under subsection (1) of this section, without regard to whether the policy covers risks or exposures that are located in Idaho. For all other lines of insurance, if a surplus line policy covers risks or exposures only partially in Idaho, the tax so payable shall be computed upon the proportion of the premium that is properly allocable to the risks or exposures located in Idaho.
(3) Each broker shall round to the nearest whole dollar any amount shown or required to be shown on any return, form, statement, or other document submitted to the director or to any entity set forth in rule pursuant to section 41-1232, Idaho Code. Any record or other document prepared or maintained by the director shall express any dollar amount rounded to the nearest whole dollar.
