5 2011 HighlightsMaryland H. 173 – Creates InvestMaryland that offers insurance premium tax credits at a discounted rate of 70% of the credits' value, with the possibility of a different rate if warranted by market conditions. Allows a maximum of $100 million in credits and requires a minimum investment of at least $1 million worth of credits, which are claimed in tax years through 2019 at 20% per year.

Passed, effective 07/01/2011.Missouri - Per Midwest Builders' Casualty Mutual Insurance Co. v. Director of Revenue, Mo. Administrative Hearing Commission, Dkt. No RG, 08/15/2011, held that Kansas workers' compensation fund assessments are “other obligations” imposed on the insurer and therefore a legitimate home state retaliatory tax burden. The Missouri workers' compensation surcharges do not offset the Kansas workers' compensation fund assessment as they are imposed as a policy holder surcharge.
7 2011 HighlightsNevada - Per State of Nevada Tax Commission v. American Home Shield of Nevada, Nev. S. Ct., Dkt. No , 07/07/2011, an insurance company's refund request for insurance premium taxes erroneously paid on service contracts in 2003 and 2004 was barred by the one-year limitations period; NRS 680B.120 applies to all overpayments of insurance premium taxes and does not provide for interest on the overpayment of insurance premium taxes.Nevada – The DOI has implemented premium tax audits for all licensed insurance companies. The DOI is applying the above holding as a position to retain any tax overpayment/carryover listed on a premium tax return that was not subsequently “perfected” through a formal request.Rhode Island OPTins Bulletin – Specifies that the DOI has implemented OPTins for e-filing and payment as of tax year 2010 and is their preferred method for filing and payment. (02/14/2011) This notice revised one released on 02/01/2011 that mandated OPTins use as of 02/18/2011.

9 2011 HighlightsArizona Taxpayer Information Ruling LR An out-of-state insurance company which is subject to and pays premium taxes to another state and is the sole member of an Arizona SMLLC that is disregarded for federal income tax purposes, is not subject to Arizona corporate income tax. The SMLLC is not subject to Arizona's corporate income tax either. (02/08/2011)California FTB Legal Ruling Held that the activities of a disregarded entity in California would cause such entity's owner to have nexus with the state. Of note, the FTB addressed the situation where a disregarded SMLLC with California business activities sufficient to constitute "doing business" in the state filed an annual California LLC Return of Income, but did not include a signed statement for its owner consenting to California's tax jurisdiction. (1/11/2011)Florida H Increases the corporate income tax exemption from $5,000 to $25,000 as of tax year Passed, effective as noted.
10 2011 HighlightsIllinois H Permits apportionment for reinsurers under the pre allocation methods [allocate to the insurer's home state or allocate on a look-through basis to the insurer's Sch T] but would lock in the method thereafter. Defines "holding company" and in certain circumstances requires allocation of holding company income/loss between insurance and noninsurance groups via a gross receipts ratio or other reasonable method. If allocated, the holding company takes on the same factor apportionment basis as each group they are included in. Passed, effective 8/23/2011.Illinois S Makes substantial income tax increases, including: 1) increases the individual rate from 3% to 5% until 2015, then decrease to 3.75% until 2025 when the rate would decrease again to 3.25%; 2) increases the corporate rate from 4.8% to 7% until 2015, the decrease to 5.25% until when the rate would decrease back to 4.8% [combined with the 2.5% Personal Property Replacement Tax, this would result in a total rate of 9.5%; the 3rd highest in the country); 3) suspends NOLs generated in tax year for usage in tax years , but would add an additional 4 years of carryforward to any suspended year. Passed, retroactively effective to Jan. 1, 2011.
11 2011 HighlightsIndiana H Provides for several tax changes: 1) decreases the state corporate income tax rate over four years, as follows: before July 1, 2012, 8.5%; before July 1, 2013, 8.0%; July 1, 2014, 7.5%; before July 1, 2015, 7.0%; and after June 30, 2015, 6.5%; 2) eliminates the net operating loss carryback; 3) taxes interest income from state and local bonds issued by other states; and 4) repeals various tax credits. Passed, effective as noted.Louisiana - Per UTELCOM. Inc. and UCOM, Inc. v. Department of Revenue, La. Ct. of App., Dkt. No. 535, 407, Division "D", 9/12/11, held that mere passive ownership of an interest in a limited partnership that conducts business in Louisiana, by itself, was not sufficient to subject the foreign corporate limited partner to Louisiana franchise taxMichigan H / H / H Repeals the MBT and replaces it with a 6% income tax. Insurance and financial institutions will retain their same basic tax structure. Nexus standards, apportionment (single-sales factor) and sourcing methodology (market sourcing) will generally remain the same. Passed, generally effective 01/01/2012.
12 2011 HighlightsMissouri Private Letter Ruling LR The DOR ruled that an insurance company formed to offer Medicare D drug plans is not exempt from the corporate income tax because it is not subject to premiums tax on its premium receipts from such prescription drug plans in Missouri. (04/02/2011)Oregon - Per Standard Financial Group, Inc., v. Dept. of Rev., Or. Tax Ct. Magis Div., Dkt. No. TC-MD B, 08/18/2011, the taxpayer corporation had to include the intercompany distribution from its wholly owned insurance subsidiary in its Oregon taxable income. Entities that engage in the insurance business in Oregon must file separate Oregon returns even if an entity is a unitary member of an affiliated group that files a federal consolidated return. Intercompany transactions between an insurance company and its unitary group are not eliminated when the insurance company is excluded from the Oregon consolidated return. Intercompany transactions must be included as income in the Oregon excise tax return despite the elimination under the federal consolidated return because the separation of entities and related transactions is made prior to the beginning point of income determination.
13 2011 Highlights MTC Project Continued effort to impose income tax at the flow-through entity level if 50%+ owned by a entity not subject to state income tax.Industry efforts to educate the MTC fell short, but a reprieve was achieved by NAIC testimony.Project has been placed back to the Uniformity Committee for further study.Recent “re-education” effort by industry members was met with continued MTC bias that the industry was avoiding tax on activities held in flow-through entities.
14 2011 HighlightsDodd-Frank Act / Nonadmitted and Reinsurance Reform ActProvisions:No state other than the home state of an insured may require any premium tax payment for nonadmitted insurance."Home state" is defined as the state:Where an insured maintains its principal place of business, orIf 100% of the insured risk is outside of that state, then “home state” is the state assigned the greatest percentage of premium."Nonadmitted insurance" is any property and casualty insurance permitted to be placed directly or through a surplus lines broker with an insurer not licensed to engage in the business of insurance in a state.States may enter into a multi-jurisdictional compact to administer and allocate the premium tax paid to the insured's home state.
15 2011 Highlights Dodd-Frank Act con’t All states, with the exception of Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, South Carolina, and Wisconsin (plus the District of Columbia), have passed legislation to provide some degree of conformity to the Act. Further, Colorado and Illinois have issued bulletins detailing how their current tax regimes may meet the Dodd-Frank provisions.State adoption of Dodd-Frank has not been uniform;The conforming states are also split on what multi-jurisdictional compact to joinPrior to Dodd-Frank, Todd Shipyards (State Bd. of Ins. v. Todd Shipyards Corp., 370 U.S. 451 (1962)) was arguably the standard states used as a basis for determining nexus for nonadmitted insurers. This nexus standard requires more than just the mere presence of insured property within the state in order to impose a state premium-based taxDoes Dodd-Frank overturn the Due Process protections for nonadmitted insurers per Todd Shipyards?
