Premium tax when only part of risk in state--Multi-state agreement--Apportionment.
For a surplus lines policy issued to an insured whose home state is this state and
where only a portion of the risk is located in this state, the entire premium tax shall be paid to the
director in accordance with § 58-32-44. If the director finds it would increase the efficiency of the
surplus lines insurance marketplace as well as the regulation of the surplus lines market, the director
may enter into a multi-state surplus lines agreement for the eligibility for placement of surplus lines
insurance and the payment, reporting, collection, and apportionment of surplus lines premium taxes.
If a surplus line policy covers risks or exposures only partially in this state and the director has
entered into agreement with other states for the apportionment of premium taxes for multi-state risks,
the tax payable under § 58-32-44 shall be computed and paid upon the proportion of the premium
which is properly allocable to the risks or exposures located in this state according to the terms of
any such agreement. The multi-state agreement may also include the eligibility for placement of
surplus lines insurance and the payment, reporting, collection, and apportionment of surplus lines
premium taxes for risks that are not multi-state and for independently procured surplus lines pursuant
to §§ 58-32-47 to 58-32-55, inclusive.
