17B:32A-18. Member insurer may offset assessments against premium tax liability
18. a. A member insurer may offset against its premium tax liability, attributable to premiums written in that year, and determined pursuant to section 1 of P.L.1945, c.132 (C.54:18A-1), any assessments for which a certificate of contribution has been issued, pursuant to subsection h. of section 8 of this act, to the extent of 10% of the amount of those assessments for each of the five calendar years following the second year after the year in which those assessments were paid, except that no member insurer may offset its premium tax liability by more than 20% of its premium tax liability in any one year. If a member insurer should cease doing business in this State, any uncredited assessments may be offset against its premium tax liability for the year in which it ceases to do business in this State.
b. Any sums which are acquired by member insurers as the result of a refund from the association pursuant to subsection f. of section 8 of this act, and which have theretofore been offset against premium taxes as provided in subsection a. of this section, shall be paid by those insurers to the State as the Director of the Division of Taxation may require. The association shall notify the commissioner and the Director of the Division of Taxation of any refunds made.
c. This section shall not apply in any way to the imposition or collection of, and no offset shall be permitted against, the surtax on premiums authorized pursuant to section 76 of P.L.1990, c.8 (C.17:33B-49).
