Delaware goes digital for SL filings
Surplus lines brokers who write in Delaware must use the Online Premium Tax for Insurance portal (OPTins) as of Jan. 1, 2018. The Department of Insurance last week released Surplus Lines Bulletin No. 21 to explain the transition. According to the bulletin, the OPTins registration process may take two weeks or longer, so impacted producers are encouraged to act at least 30 days in advance.
