What is a TTB tobacco bond?

U.S.C. Title 26 Chapter 52 requires manufacturers of tobacco products, proprietors of an export warehouse, and manufacturers of cigarettes papers and tubes file a TTB tobacco surety bond before being licensed. TTB Form 5200.29 is officially titled the “Tobacco Bond - Surety,” but it's more commonly known as the "TTB tobacco bond." This bond specifically requires that the licensed tobacco business comply with all rules and federal regulations outlined in United States Code Chapter 52 or Section 7652 of Title 26. The bonded business is legally bound to pay taxes, including penalties and interest, for which they are liable. If they fail to do so, their issuing surety company will pay valid claims up to the full bond amount, which the tobacco business must reimburse.

Who regulates licensing for tobacco businesses? 

The U.S. Department of the Treasury Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) enforces regulations for tobacco businesses, including this surety bond requirement. If you have questions about your TTB application, surety bond, or tax payments, the TTB advises you contact the National Revenue Center by calling 1(877)882-3277 or by emailing [email protected].
