Increase in limitation for alternative tax liability for small property and casualty insurance companies
Clause (i) of section 831(b)(2)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 is amended to read as follows:
the net written premiums (or, if greater, direct written premiums) for the taxable year do not exceed $1,971,000, and
Paragraph (2) of section 831(b) of such Code is amended by adding at the end the following new subparagraph:
In the case of any taxable year beginning in a calendar year after 2006, the $1,971,000 amount set forth in subparagraph (A) shall be increased by an amount equal to—
$1,971,000, multiplied by
the cost-of-living adjustment determined under section 1(f)(3) for such calendar year by substituting `calendar year 2005' for `calendar year 1992' in subparagraph (B) thereof. If the amount as adjusted under the preceding sentence is not a multiple of $1,000, such amount shall be rounded to the next lowest multiple of $1,000.
The amendments made by this section shall apply to taxable years beginning after December 31, 2005.
