Why do I need this bond?
Florida fuel tax bonds ensure that principals (motor fuel, diesel fuel, aviation fuel, pollutants, importers and alternative fuel professionals) comply with the Florida statutory tax provisions. If the principal fails to pay all sums due to the state on time and in full, the bond protects the state from financial loss up to the full penal sum of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for any damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Fuel tax bonds in Florida cover the following areas of business:
- motor fuel
- diesel fuel
- aviation fuel
- alternative fuel
An original bond form must be submitting for each fuel product type or taxable pollutant.
The surety can cancel the bond by giving written notice of cancellation to the Department of Revenue. Cancellation becomes effective 60 days after the notice is received.
