Sales Tax Bonds
A sales tax bond guarantees that all sellers will pay their required sales taxes. The seller is the principal and the obligee is a public entity. These type of bonds are required at the state level, usually by the Comptroller or Department of Revenue, in order to for sellers to maintain their licenses. The amount of the bond is determined by the public entity.
There are many different types of sales tax bonds. Some of the common ones are:
- Alcohol Tax Bonds
- Fuel Tax Bonds
Sales Tax Bonds are considered high risk because it’s essentially a financial guarantee bond. As the obligee, the public entity could file a claim and receive compensation up to the bond penal sum amount if the principal (seller) is not in compliance. If the amount of the bond is over $50,000, then the surety will most likely need to review company and personal financials in order to approve the bond.
