You must use the NAIC OPTins (www.optins.org) system, or a system that is interfaced to provide reports and payments through the NAIC OPTins system, to file insurance premium tax reports and payments.  Reports and payments filed through the mail will be voided and returned, and will be considered not to have been filed.

Before proceeding with your OPTins tax/fee filing and payment:

  • Please read E-TAX-I instructions.
  • Resolve all errors in forms.  Do not submit a form if it contains cells highlighted with a yellow background or red error text.

Please only use the newest version of tax forms, which are continuously improved from tax preparer feedback and which are configured for use with OPTins.

Retaliation: Wisconsin-domiciled Insurers

A Wisconsin-domiciled insurer must, for Arizona retaliation purposes, complete the Wisconsin tax and retaliation report the same way that Wisconsin requires an Arizona-domiciled insurer to complete it. 

Form E-RT: Retaliation Report

If the insurer is domiciled in Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, or Rhode Island, do not complete or file Form E-RT.

For all other foreign/alien insurers, filing complete and correct retaliation reports will allow us serve you efficiently, and with minimal hassle.

Before proceeding with completing the Retaliation Report (Form E-RT):

  • Use the Arizona Retaliation Guide to assist you in identifying taxes, fees and assessments to which Arizona-domiciled insurers are subject in your domicile.
  • Resolve all errors in forms.  Do not submit a form if it contains cells highlighted with a yellow background or red error text.

NOTE:  The Arizona Department of Insurance no longer publishes an Annual Taxes and Fees Data Sheet.
