What’s the fine print?
Admissions tax surety bonds in Virginia remain in full force and effect until canceled or violated. The surety can cancel the bond at any time by sending written notice of cancellation via First Class U.S. Mail to both the City of Virginia Beach and the principal. Termination becomes effective 60 days after the postmark date of the notice.
There is a separate bond form for sole proprietorship/partnership businesses and corporation businesses, so applicants should know their business entity type when they come to SuretyBonds.com for their bonding needs.
