How to submit the Appendix 3 Excel file

To further assist our producers, the Appendix 3 is now submitted online through the Department of Insurance Surplus Lines Web Portal. The User Guide directs users through the online system for account creation, account management and submission of the filings.

Section 384.057 RSMo requires that before March 2 of each year, each surplus lines producer shall file with the Director the surplus lines tax report known as the Appendix 3 form. If you held a surplus lines license anytime during the tax year, you are required to submit the Appendix 3 form. If no business was placed, you are required to file a zero return.

The surplus lines licensee shall thereafter maintain in the licensee's files the original verified annual surplus lines tax report in its entirety for a period ending five years after the filing of the verified annual surplus lines tax report. The electronic filing of the annual surplus lines tax report constitutes a representation by the licensee who files it that the licensee has in the licensee's possession at the time of electronic filing the fully executed original verified annual surplus lines tax report.

How to use the Surplus Lines Web Portal

You will log into your account and select the Appendix 3 at the top of the page. You will need to fill out the form in its entirety and click either submit and continue or submit and finish. Please remember not to submit any tax amounts on your filings. 

After you submit your filings, go to the Print Data for this session tab at the top of the page. This is the only time this information is available. You will be emailed the process complete report the next business day with the risk numbers for your records.
