Excess Lines: Premium Tax Statement

Due: Annually on March 15th

Note: As of January 1, 2019, excess line brokers may file "ZERO" premium tax statements online if they meet ALL of the following criteria:

  • No surplus lines business was written in New York for year 2018;
  • No transactions were reported to Excess Line Association of New York (ELANY) for any endorsements/cancellations; and
  • No premium taxes or credits are due for 2018 and prior years.
