Why do you need a tobacco payment bond?

You are required to obtain a surety bond to sell tobacco, which protects the public. If you do not pay the required taxes on the tobacco you sell to the government, a claim can be filed on your bond.

If you're unsure whether you need a bond, you can select your state from the list below to view the bond requirements.

It depends on the state. Some only require one bond for the sale of all tobacco products. Other states require a separate bond for the sale of tobacco products other than cigarettes. Check with your state to determine the specific requirements.

Does every state require tobacco tax bonds?

No. Bond requirements vary by state. You can view our state requirement list. If your state is not included, please contact it directly because legislation can change often.

What if I have a false claim?

Contact the surety company's claims department and provide evidence that the claim is false. Watch our video to learn more about bond claims.

Can I get this bond with bad credit?

Yes. You can apply to get approved for a tobacco bond, even if you have credit issues. Keep in mind, the price will increase significantly.
