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 which 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.
