Insurance Law Section 7712
Credits for assessments paid
(a)The superintendent shall annually, within six months following the close of each calendar year, furnish to the commissioner of taxation and finance and the director of the division of the budget a statement of operations for the life insurance guaranty corporation and the life and health insurance company guaranty corporation of New York. Such statement shall show the assessments, less any refunds or reimbursements thereof, paid by each insurance company pursuant to the provisions of article seventy-five or § 7709 (Assessments)section seven thousand seven hundred nine of this article, for the purposes of meeting the requirements of this chapter. Each statement, starting with the statement furnished in the year nineteen hundred eighty-six and ending with the statement furnished in the year two thousand, shall show the annual activity for every year commencing from nineteen hundred eighty-five through the most recently completed year. Each statement furnished in each year after the year two thousand shall reflect such assessments paid during the preceding fifteen calendar years. The superintendent shall also furnish a copy of such statement to each such insurance company.
(b)The maximum authorized credit for each company in respect of the assessments paid during the most recent calendar year covered by such statement shall be as follows:
(1)if the sum of the net assessments paid by all companies in the period reported on in the statement of operations required to be furnished by the superintendent pursuant to the provisions of subsection (a) of this section is less than one hundred million dollars, no such credits shall be authorized;
(2)(A) if the sum of such net assessments exceeds one hundred million dollars, the maximum authorized credit for each company with respect to net assessments paid by such company in any year shall be the excess, if any, of (i) over (ii), where (i) is the sum of such company’s tentative cross-over year credit and its tentative credits for subsequent years, both as determined pursuant to subparagraphs (B) and (C) of this paragraph, and
(ii)is the sum of the maximum credits theretofore authorized for the years covered by such statement, to and including the most recently completed year, determined with reference to the periods covered by all prior such statements. (B) Such company’s tentative cross-over year credit shall be eighty per centum of the product of (i) and (ii), where (i) is the sum of assessments paid by such company during the cross-over year, and
(ii)is a fraction, the numerator of which is the excess over one hundred million dollars of the sum of net assessments paid by all companies during such period and the denominator of which is the sum of net assessments paid by such companies during the cross-over year. For purposes of this paragraph, the cross-over year is the first year during the period covered by such statement in which the net assessments paid by all companies during such period exceeded one hundred million dollars in whole or in part. (C) Such company’s tentative credit for each year subsequent to the cross-over year shall be eighty per centum of the net assessments paid by such company during such year.
(3)For the purposes of this section, net assessments means gross assessments, less any recoveries or reimbursements, paid during the period covered by the most recent statement of operations furnished by the superintendent pursuant to the provisions of subsection (a) of this section.
