I'm tax-exempt. Do I still have to pay surplus line taxes and fees?
Yes. By saying you are tax-exempt, you probably mean you are a
nonprofit or charitable organization and have one or both of the
following: (1) an exemption from Illinois Retailers' Occupation
Tax -- commonly referred to as sales tax; (2) A Federal Income Tax exemption.
These exemptions are only for the taxes to which they specifically refer and offer you
no relief from Surplus Line Tax, Fire Marshal Tax or
Association Stamping Fees.
