Surplus Lines Reporting Application
Surplus Lines Reporting Application

The Surplus Lines application allows insurance agents, agencies, and risk retention groups doing business in Ohio to file their Ohio Department of Insurance (ODI)-required surplus lines tax data online. (Risk purchasing groups who issue policies with a surplus lines insurer or risk retention group are required to have the reporting done in the name of the agent or agency who sold the business.)

Who Should Use This Application

Only insurance agents, agencies, and risk retention groups filing their surplus lines tax data should access this application. Complete information and instructions can be found here in the documents section.
