Warning - Phishing Scam

We are aware of a phishing scam targeting insurance professionals claiming that the National Association of Insurance Commissioners received a complaint that the professional submitted a falsified claim. This fraudulent email displays the NAIC and CIPR logos, can originate from what appears to be an naic.org or gmail.com email account, and instructs the recipient to click on a link to download the complaint notification.

Certain antivirus products will detect this as a malicious email.  If you receive a similar email and have any concerns, contact the NAIC Service Desk at (816) 783-8500 or [email protected].

Regulatory Bulletin 2016-04: Service Fees Charged by Surplus Lines Brokers

This regulatory bulletin clarifies that HB 2149 did not change the requirements for surplus lines brokers (SLBs) to report and pay taxes and stamping fees for service fees that SLBs charge insureds. Instead, HB 2149 clarified that a SLB does not need to report or pay taxes on a service fee charged to an insured by a insurance producer as may be permissible under ARS §§ 20-407(C) and 20-465, for which an insurance producer is not subject to premium tax but may be subject to federal and state income taxes.
