Why do I need 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.
If you’re ready to move forward, submit a bond request! Our experts know the bonding process backward and forward and are able to answer all of your questions and get you the bond you need quickly, easily and accurately.
What’s the fine print?
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.
