Ins. Code Section 228.157
Distributions by Certified Capital Company
(a)In this section, “qualified distribution” means any distribution or payment from certified capital by a certified capital company in connection with:
(1)the reasonable costs and expenses of forming, syndicating, managing, and operating the company, provided that the distribution or payment is not made directly or indirectly to a certified investor, including:
(A)reasonable and necessary fees paid for professional services, including legal and accounting services, related to the company’s formation and operation; and
(B)an annual management fee in an amount that does not exceed 2.5 percent of the company’s certified capital; and
(2)a projected increase in federal or state taxes, including penalties and interest related to state and federal income taxes, of the company’s equity owners resulting from the earnings or other tax liability of the company to the extent that the increase is related to the ownership, management, or operation of the company.
(b)A certified capital company may make a qualified distribution at any time. To make a distribution or payment other than a qualified distribution, a company must have made qualified investments in an amount cumulatively equal to 100 percent of the company’s certified capital.
(c)If a business in which a qualified investment is made relocates the business’s principal business operations to another state during the term of the certified capital company’s investment in the business, the cumulative amount of qualified investments made by the certified capital company for purposes of satisfying the requirements of Subsection (b) only is reduced by the amount of the certified capital company’s qualified investments in the business that has relocated.
(d)Subsection (c) does not apply if the business demonstrates that the business has returned the business’s principal business operations to this state not later than the 90th day after the date of the relocation.
