Kansas Administrative Regulations

Agency 40.  Insurance Department

Article 8.  Excess Coverage


40-8-7 Excess lines insurance; agents; submission of affidavit required.


(a) The excess lines agent who actually places business with a non-admitted insurer shall file the affidavit and annual statement reporting forms prescribed by the commissioner. Other excess lines agents shall file only the affidavit form prescribed by the commissioner. Each excess line agent shall file the appropriate form or forms with the department, on or before March 1st of each year, and shall include a tax remittance in the amount of 6% of the gross premium for all policies written on risks that were placed during the preceding calendar year.

(1)  ``Gross premium'' means the amount charged to the insured for the insurance procured. When an audit or gross receipts contract requires a deposit premium, the amount collected during the calendar year either as a deposit or partial payment shall be reported on the affidavit and annual statement reporting forms as gross premium for that calendar year. Gross premium shall not include the tax due on the premium nor shall that tax be charged to the insured unless specifically identified and provided for in the policy.

(2)  When a policy is renewed or an adjustment, addition, or reduction is made on a risk previously placed, the excess lines agent shall make the appropriate adjusting entry on the annual statement reporting form.

(b)  If the excess lines agent fails to submit a statement and pay the premium tax as required by subsection (a) of this regulation, an assessment equalling two times the amount of excess premium tax required by K.S.A. 40-246c shall be collected by the commissioner. This subsection shall not apply under the following circumstances:

(1)  If the required statement and excess premium tax payment is submitted by mail on or before the 1st day of March of each year;

(2)  if the required statement and the excess premium tax payment is received by the commissioner before the 1st day of January of each year and the statement and premium include all transactions of the excess coverage licensee during the year; or

(3)  if the required statement and excess premium tax payment is not received by the commissioner because no transactions contemplated by the statute occurred during the preceding year.
