What is the process?

Apply online, get approved instantly, sign the indemnity agreement, pay on our website and we will send the bond to you.

Do all states require a sales tax revenue bond?

No; however, many states do. You can view our state requirements list. If your state is not listed, it is wise to contact it directly as requirements can change.

Where can I get a sales use tax bond form?

We have forms on file. If you do not see your bond, you need to obtain the bond form from the obligee (the one requiring the bond).

How is the bond amount calculated?

It is generally based on the business' location and dollar amount of sales. You need to determine the bond amount with the specific government department requiring the bond of you; many now have calculators on their websites to help you determine the bond amount you must post.

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 your business operates. A general sales and use tax bond is needed to sell goods other than alcohol, fuel or tobacco. You can apply for this bond and get an instant approval. 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. It is wise to contact your state directly to determine any bond requirements, as these may be modified without notification.
