What is a California Motor Vehicle Fuel Distributor Bond?

It is a financial security required of every motor vehicle fuel distributor. This bond must be submitted to the California State Board of Equalization along with other license requirements as stated in the California Motor Vehicle Fuel License Tax Law.

A surety bond is a means to assure the California State Board of Equalization that the licensee will pay the taxes on time and in full. The payment of taxes is equivalent to three times the estimated average monthly tax liability of the licensee.

In the event that the licensee fails to pay these, the Obligee of the surety bond will be able to obtain the amount due including penalties and interest through a claim.

This requirement is in pursuance of Section 7486 of the California Revenue and Taxation Code.

How much does a California Motor Vehicle Fuel Distributor Bond cost?

The bond premium will typically range from 1.5% to 5% of the bond amount. This will be based on the motor vehicle fuel distributor’s credit score.

The California State Board of Equalization will determine the bond amount.
The bound amount will be three times the estimated average monthly tax liability of the motor vehicle fuel distributor. However, it will not be more than $1,000,000.

How does a California Motor Vehicle Fuel Distributor Bond work?

A surety bond is a three-party agreement.

Principal – motor vehicle fuel distributor

Obligee – the State of California

Surety – surety bond company

This bond is for the protection of the Obligee in case the Principal fails to promptly pay the necessary taxes or violates any of the relevant provisions of the California Revenue and Taxation Code. If the Principal fails to do any of the bonded obligations, the Obligee can file a bond claim. The Surety will first investigate if the claim is valid before paying the Obligee. If the claim is valid, the Surety will pay the Obligee. The Principal must then reimburse the Surety for the payments made.
