Why this bond
By posting a Connecticut alcoholic beverage distributor bond, principals (distributors) guarantee to pay all taxes and fees imposed by state or local laws. If any distributors commit fraud or other damaging acts, such as falsifying records of sale or failing to pay requisite taxes on prior sales, this bond ensures that consumers and the state will be protected from any financial losses up to the full bond amount.
The surety will initially compensate harmed parties, but the principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
