Why do I need this bond?
Motor fuel and special fuel tax bonds ensure that principals (fuel handlers) comply with all the provisions of motor fuel tax laws in Kansas - such as paying taxes and other fees. If a principal fails to fulfill these terms, a claim can be made against the bond to recover owed funds.
What’s the fine print?
The Kansas Department of Revenue maintains three separate bond forms - one for each motor fuel designation (distributor, importer/exporter, or manufacturer). The principal’s business structure and street address must be listed on the form. If the bond is to be canceled, the surety must provide at least 60 days notice to the obligee.
How to become a motor vehicle fuel manufacturer, distributor, or importer/exporter in Kansas
It is unlawful for anyone to act as a motor vehicle fuel manufacturer, distributor, or importer/exporter without first obtaining the proper license. In addition to providing a bond, an applicant must submit a fully filled out application packet to become licensed. The application must include the following information:
- the name that the applicant intends to transact business under
- the mailing address and location address
- the company’s Federal Employers Identification Number
- the company’s business phone and fax number
- contact information for all owners with 5% or more ownership
- and more
There is no fee required to apply. Licenses can be renewed annually before the first day of November. Detailed licensing information can be found in the “Additional Resources” section of this page.
