3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
Taxable premium base for insurers and surplus lines is projected at $2,100,000,000.

$4,200,000 X .25 (1 quarter) = $1,050,000.
Personal Services of $8,000 to modify tax forms, data systems and remittance processing.
Current Expenses of $2,000 to notify insurers of the new surcharge.
