(1) the specific calculation of the appropriate commission amount; and

(d) Premium refunds paid to an insured must include a ratable amount of commission, originally collected by the licensee, and refunded to the insured if a contract of insurance is terminated early.

(f) Failure to comply with (a), (b), (c), or (d) of this section is a violation of AS 21.27.360 .
