(2) Solicit the sale of or sell insurance if it is deemed to be in a hazardous condition or financially impaired;

c. All premiums paid to risk retention groups not chartered in this State for coverage on risks within this State are subject to taxation at the same rate and are subject to the same interest, fines and penalties for nonpayment as that taxation which is applicable to surplus lines insurers. All premiums paid to risk retention groups chartered in this State for coverage on risks within this State are subject to taxation at the same rate and shall be subject to the same interest, fines, and penalties for nonpayment as that taxation which is applicable to foreign admitted insurers.
