  2.  All licenses, fees, taxes, fines or penalties collectible under this section shall be paid to the director of revenue.  The payment and assessment of retaliatory tax shall be made on an estimated quarterly basis in the same manner as premium insurance tax as provided in sections 148.310 to 148.461.

  3.  Effective January 1, 2012, notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, operating assessments based upon workers' compensation paid losses that are imposed upon an insurance company by the laws of its state or foreign country of domicile shall not be considered any premium or income or other taxes or any fees, fines, penalties, licenses, deposit requirements or other obligations, prohibitions or restrictions, provided that with respect to the tax year in question the insurance company has its principal place of business within this state and receives more than three million dollars of direct insurance premiums on account of business done in this state.
