What is a motor fuels tax bond?

New Jersey fuel tax bonds make certain the principal (distributor) faithfully performs all duties and complies with all requirements stated in N.J.S.A 54:39-101 (Motor Fuel Tax Act). Under this bond, all fuel dealers must:

  • Keep records of all fuel sold, received or used for a period of 4 years
  • Send a report to the Director of the Division of Taxation stating the number of fuel gallons sold before the 22nd day of each month
  • Pay tax rates before the 22nd of each month

What’s the fine print?

The aggregate sum of the bond must be paid to the State if the bond is voided. Each distributor’s bond amount must be 3 times the estimated tax liability of gallons handled per month.
