Why do I need this bond?

By posting a tobacco tax stamp affixing agent’s bond, the principal (affixing agent) promises to perform all duties in full compliance with the Tennessee Code Annotated Section 67-4-1006. Specifically, this bond ensures that the principal promptly and properly accounts to the state for the distribution of all stamped and unstamped tobacco products and pays all monies, interest, and penalties that may be assessed against him or her for the improper or illegal affixing of tax revenue stamps and/or the distribution, sale, or disposal of untaxed products according to law.

What’s the fine print?

Tennessee tobacco affixing agent bonds remain in full force until the principal or the surety requests that liability be terminated. The surety can cancel this bond at any time by giving the Commissioner 60 days’ notice by registered mail of its intention to terminate.
