Motor fuel distributor bond cost
The Georgia Department of Revenue requires motor fuel distributors to post surety bonds in an amount equal to 3 times their monthly tax liability— between $1,000 and $150,000. Applicants must verify their required bond amount with the state prior to bonding.
These bonds are subject to underwriting consideration, so the price you’ll pay depends on your required coverage amount and a review of your personal credit report. Applicants with strong financial credentials could qualify to pay as little as 1% of their required bond amount. Bad credit? No problem!
Surety Bonds offers an exclusive bad credit bonding program through which 99% of applicants are approved for the bonds they need regardless of financial credentials. Ready to find out exactly how much you’ll pay for your bond?
Why this bond
By posting a Georgia motor fuel distributor surety bond, principals (motor fuel distributors) pledge to pay all state and locally-imposed taxes and fees and comply with all regulations listed in Title 48, Chapter 9, Article 1 of the Motor Fuel Tax Act. If the principal commits fraud or other damaging acts, such as falsifying records of sale, or is unable to pay requisite taxes on prior sales, the bond protects consumers and the state from financial loss.
