Motor fuel purchaser bond cost
The Michigan Department of Treasury determines the required bond amount for motor fuel and motor carrier fuel purchaser bonds and tobacco products license bonds. The bond amount should not be less than $2,000 or more than the applicant’s 3-month tax liability.
Why this bond
Michigan motor fuel, motor carrier, tobacco products license or motor fuel eligible purchaser bonds ensure that these professionals pay all taxes and penalties provided for or required by law on time and in full. If a professional fails to pay all of the necessary taxes and uphold all other terms of the bond, a claim can be brought against the bond. The surety will compensate consumers for any damages, but the motor fuel purchaser is ultimately responsible for reimbursing the surety.
Motor fuel purchaser bond details
Michigan motor fuel, motor carrier, tobacco products license or motor fuel eligible purchaser bonds remain in effect for one year from the date of issuance. The surety underwriting company must provide the Department of Treasury with 10 days’ written notice if the bond is to be canceled.
This bond form contains multiple bond types (licensee of motor fuel, liquid petroleum gas dealer, IFTA license, eligible purchaser, wholesale or unclassified acquirer of tobacco products), so be sure to indicate the appropriate business type on the form itself.
