The Surplus Lines Tax Filing Process
Simple Online Submission
Our cloud-based filing portal makes getting policy data easy.
First, we provide a simple-to-use online portal to get your surplus lines policies into our system. We offer an open API option, facilitating the transfer of policy information from your system directly to ours. We have several pre-built integrations with popular agency management systems such as Vertafore AIM, Instanda, MGA Systems, and more.
InsCipher handles the rest
Our expert team handles all filings, tax reports, and payments to state offices.
Surplus lines filings, payments, and reports can be due monthly, quarterly, or annually. Whatever the state requirements are, you can trust that InsCipher will have you covered. We also track and file zero reports on your behalf.
Quality Control Process
InsCipher provides two layers of quality control to ensure accuracy and completeness of policy submissons.
Once your surplus lines policies are entered into InsCipher’s web-based portal, our automated reconciliation tools get to work and flag any immediate reporting errors. Our filing compliance team then manually reviews each policy for compliance and will notify you of any required action needed by you or your team.
