User ID Help
Each licensed insurance company treasurer was mailed a User ID and password at the time the online premium tax filing system went into effect several years ago. An account is automatically created for each newly-licensed insurance company and the User ID and password are mailed to the company treasurer in January of the year the first tax return is due. The company treasurer is responsible for security of the company's online account by controlling the User ID and password. Once a User ID is assigned to a company, it never changes.
If the system does not recognize your User ID, you are most likely using a User ID from another online system. You cannot create your own User ID for this system. Please check with your treasurer to verify your User ID. If you are unable to verify your User ID, please follow the steps in the Contact Information section below.

For questions about your premium tax filings or if you need assistance with your account information, the preferred method of contact it to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This email box is generally monitored by multiple individuals from at least 8:00 AM through 6:00 PM Eastern Standard time, Monday through Friday during tax season. You should usually receive a response within a few minutes. Please do not attempt to contact ODI via telephone regarding your Premium Tax application User ID or password as this will only slow down our response time and you will be directed to send an email to the taxes email address. Voicemail messages left regarding premium taxes are given a low priority due to workload during tax season and can take several hours for us to return your call.
