What Is an Alcohol Tax Bond? 

Alcohol tax bonds guarantee that businesses pay local and state taxes for selling, producing and warehousing liquor and other alcoholic beverages. 

Alcohol bonds are known by many different names, including:

  • Alcohol beverage control bonds
  • TTB brewer’s bonds
  • Liquor bonds
  • Liquor license bonds
  • Malt beverage license bonds
  • On-premise beer bonds
  • Wine bonds

How Do Alcohol Tax Bonds Work?

Each alcohol tax bond is a legal contract binding three entities together:

  1. The Principal: The alcohol-related business purchasing the bond
  2. The Obligee: The government agency requiring the bond
  3. The Surety: The insurance provider underwriting the bond

The principal agrees to pay all applicable alcohol taxes as they become due. If they fail to do so, the government entity can file a claim to recover unpaid taxes or fines.

Who Needs an Alcohol Bond?

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) requires a federal surety bond for all brewers, distillers, etc. who owed $50,000 or more in excise taxes during the previous year. 

However, several states also require sellers of alcohol products to submit a bond. For more information about alcohol tax bonds in your area, select your state below:
