What Is A Sales Tax Bond?

It is a guarantee that sellers of goods, such as retail and convenience store owners, will properly account for and pay required taxes to the government. If the required taxes are not paid, a claim can be filed on the bond which the surety will pay initially; however, they will go back to the bond holder for reimbursement.

Definition: A miscellaneous bond that ensures merchants selling goods will account for and pay any required taxes to the government. Sales tax bonds are also commonly referred to as sales and use tax bonds.

Which Sales Tax Bond Do I Need?

The type of sales tax bond needed will vary by the type of goods being sold, and the state in which the business operates.

A general sales and use tax bond is needed to sell goods other than alcohol, fuel or tobacco. You can apply for these bonds and get an instant approval online. Whether or not the state requirement will be satisfied with a general sales tax bond will vary among states, as each has unique bond requirements. Take a look at our state bond requirement list below. It is also wise to contact your state directly to determine any bond requirements, as these may be modified without notification.

In order to sell tobacco, fuel or alcohol, separate sales tax bonds are required, which are tobacco tax bonds, fuel tax bonds and alcohol tax bonds respectively. These bonds also guarantee taxes will be paid to the government.
