RULE §3.37Calculation of Annual Assessment for Banks

(a) Bank assessment calculation table. The annual assessment for a state bank is calculated as described in this section and paid as provided by §3.36 of this title (relating to Annual Assessments and Specialty Examination Fees), based on the values in the following table, as such values may be periodically adjusted in the manner provided by Subsection (b) of this section. Certain terms used in this section and in the following table are defined in §3.36(b). The unadjusted values in the following table are effective until September 1, 2021:

(b) Required adjustments for inflation. In this section, "GDPIPD" means the Gross Domestic Product Implicit Price Deflator, published quarterly by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, United States Department of Commerce. The "annual GDPIPD factor" is equal to the percentage change in the GDPIPD index values published for the first quarter of the current year compared to the first quarter of the previous year (the March-to-March period immediately preceding the calculation date), rounded to a hundredth of a percent (two decimal places).

  (1) Each September 1, the table in subsection (a) of this section, as most recently revised before such date pursuant to this subsection, is revised as follows:

    (A) each marginal assessment factor listed in Step 3 of the table is increased (or decreased) by an amount proportionate to the measure of inflation (or deflation) reflected in the annual GDPIPD factor, rounded to six decimal places;

    (B) the base assessment amount listed in Step 4 for assessable asset group 1 is increased (or decreased) by an amount proportionate to the measure of inflation (or deflation) reflected in the annual GDPIPD factor, rounded to whole dollars; and

    (C) each base assessment amount listed in Step 4 for assessable asset groups 2 through 14 is adjusted to an amount equal to the maximum annual assessment possible for the next lower assessable asset group (without surcharge), rounded to whole dollars. For example, the base assessment amount for assessable asset group 2 is equal to the annual assessment (without surcharge) calculated under assessable asset group 1 for a bank with exactly $10 million in assessable assets.

  (2) Not later than August 1 of each year, the department shall calculate and prepare a revised table reflecting the inflation-adjusted values to be applied effective the following September 1, and shall provide each state bank with notice of and access to the revised table. At least once every four years, the department shall propose amendments to this section for the purpose of substituting a current revised table in subsection (a) of this section, and for such other purposes as may be appropriate.
