Make OPTins Your Electronic Tax Filing Solution!
OPTins is your electronic filing solution, facilitating premium tax, surplus lines tax, assessments, and other state-specific tax filings.
Users log into OPTins, upload their state-specific tax forms, enter the applicable fee amount, and click “Submit.”
OPTins makes it easy for PREMIUM Pro users, too. PREMIUM Pro users can now submit their filings to the states via the PREMIUM Pro interface. With OPTins, fees and data are submitted to the states simultaneously and securely.
There are no license fees or special software to purchase. OPTins can be accessed securely, via the web, anywhere!
States can review filings online, as well as process tax payments electronically via EFT. You’ll no longer worry about misplaced filings, or penalties for lost payments.
Have you ever thought about the actual cost to process your filing in paper vs. filing electronically? You’d be surprised at how much it really costs! Click here to find out more, and then review the Cost Benefit Model.
