New Jersey Insurance Department clarifies surplus lines premium tax
end of June, the New Jersey legislature passed a budget bill which would, among
other things, increase the surplus lines premium tax in that state from three
percent to five percent, effective July 1, 2009. In light of numerous questions
raised regarding the implementation of this change, the NJDOBI last week issued
a clarifying letter (see attached).
letter states, in part, that producers may delay submitting the increased tax
until the filing of their fourth quarter tax return, to allow them time to
institute the necessary system modifications and related billings.
