        My Insurance company sent me my renewal notice. My annuity statement indicates I am to pay a tax on my annuity. I have never heard of this before, is this correct?

        NRS 680B.027 requires insurers to pay a 3.5% tax on net direct premiums and net direct considerations written in Nevada.  The statute does not prevent the insurer from passing this cost on to their customers.

         

          Can I file my return online?

          You are required to make your payment online if it is over $10,000; however at this time you cannot file online and will have to mail the hard copy into the Department.
