Insurance companies that write any form of motor vehicle insurance in Texas as defined in Insurance Code, Article 5.01(e) must pay this assessment.
$2 per motor vehicle year.
There is no penalty or interest assessed to a report or payment submitted late for the Motor Vehicle Crime Prevention Authority. However, at the discretion of the Authority, a delinquent insurer may be reported to the Texas Department of Insurance for failure to comply.
Select the amount of taxes you paid in the preceding state fiscal year (Sept. 1 – Aug. 31) to find the reporting and payment methods to use.
The Comptroller's office collects this assessment under contract with the ABTPA. Insurers who overpay must notify the ABTPA within four years of payment. The Authority decides whether overpayments will be refunded, and the Authority's decision is final. An amended report submitted to the Comptroller’s office will not be accepted but forwarded to the Authority for review.
If you have questions about ABTPA assessment refunds, call the ABTPA at 512-465-1485.
