Texas

Established by legislation in 2013, Texas considers pure captives from a growing diversified market and offers a .5% premium tax rate. A very favorable state economic climate coupled with a regulatory process designed to engage, assess, and approve legitimate captive insurer programs makes Texas the destination for businesses throughout the world.
