5729.10 Revocation of license for failure to pay tax or make report - action to recover taxes - report on ceasing to do business.

If a company fails to pay the tax levied by section 5729.03 of the Revised Code, or to make any partial payment thereof as required by law after a statement thereof has been made and mailed to it, or if the annual statement required by law to be made by it is false or incorrect, the superintendent of insurance may revoke the license of such company doing business in this state. Upon failure to pay the tax or to make partial payment thereof according to law, the superintendent shall certify that fact to the attorney general, who shall thereupon begin an action against the company in the court of common pleas of Franklin county, or any other county he elects, to recover the amount of the tax. If such company ceases to do business in this state, it shall thereupon make a report to the superintendent of the gross amount of premiums not theretofore reported as provided in section 5729.02 or 5729.04 of the Revised Code received by it from policies covering risks within this state prior to such discontinuance of business, after deducting return premiums and considerations received for reinsurance not theretofore so reported, and shall forthwith pay to the superintendent a like per cent of tax thereon.
