Nebraska Insurance Director Bruce Range issued the following notice on December 14, 2011 to all insurance companies regarding 2012 Premium Tax Filing with OPTins:

The Nebraska Department of Insurance has implemented OPTins (Online Premium Tax for Insurance) for Insurance Companies beginning with the 2012 quarterly tax return. OPTins, a product of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), has been developed to facilitate Premium Tax submission of forms and payments.  This is our required method of filing tax returns beginning with calendar year 2012 premium tax filing requirements.

The steps to submit your tax filing are very simple and require no formal training.  Easy to follow instructions are available at: .  Once registered and set up, you will be able to log in, upload your filing forms and submit your payment online.  No more paper checks – everything is electronic and tax forms along with the payment are received at the Nebraska Department of Insurance.

Using OPTins allows you to save time and ensure that both the forms and payment are received together and on time.

To implement OPTins, contact the OPTins Marketing Team at or call (816) 783-8787.

If you already use OPTins, you do not have to contact OPTins Marketing.  Just log in and file for Nebraska.
