59A-30-12. Maintenance assessment.
The superintendent shall determine a rate of assessment and collect a maintenance fee in an amount not to exceed one percent of the correctly reported gross title insurance premiums on policies written in New Mexico of all authorized title insurers. The fee required by this section is in addition to all other taxes and fees now imposed or that may be subsequently imposed and that are not in conflict with this article. The superintendent, after taking into account the unexpended funds produced by this fee, if any, shall adjust the rate of assessment each year to produce the amount of funds that he estimates will be necessary to pay all the expenses of regulating the business of title insurance during the succeeding year. The superintendent in promulgating premium rates shall take into account assessments made under this section.
