OPTins – ONLINE PREMIUM TAX FOR INSURANCE
Now that OPTins offers both ACH Credit and ACH Debit as payment options, the Delaware Insurance Department even more strongly encourages all companies - including tax-exempt companies that pay annual renewal fees - to use OPTins to submit Delaware premium tax and annual renewal forms and payments electronically. OPTins is the preferred method for submitting calendar year 2015 annual premium tax and fees, however, OPTins is not mandatory at this time.
