Why do I need this bond?
Malt and brewed beverage bonds in Pennsylvania guarantee the payment of taxes set by the Malt Beverage Tax Act. Principals (malt beverage sellers) must repay the taxes collected from the sale of malt liquor to the Commonwealth. This specific bond protects the state from any financial loss if an alcohol seller fails to pay these taxes and other required fees.
