What is an Iowa Alcohol Tax Bond?
Let us guide you in acquiring an alcohol tax bond for your business!
The surety bond is a licensure requirement for owners of breweries, wineries, distilleries, beer wholesalers, or wine distributors. The requirement is enforced by the Alcohol, Tobacco, Tax and Trade Bureau, and is conditioned to ensure the following:
- That the license applicant will pay the right amount of taxes
- That the license applicant will strictly comply with all regulatory and legal requirements of the business of selling alcoholic beverages in Iowa.
The Alcohol Tax Bond is a contract between the following parties:
Principal – the person who will sell, manufacture, import, export, distribute the alcoholic beverages in Iowa.
Obligee – the organization or government unit requiring the bond
Surety – the surety bond company that will act as a guarantor for the principal’s compliance with the bond conditions
The Alcohol Tax Bond is also known by other names. This can either be specific to the state or the type of alcoholic beverage. Here are some examples:
- Liquor Bond
- Alcoholic Beverage Tax Bond
- Liquor Tax Bond
- Beverage Tax Bond
- Brewer’s Bond
- Distilled Spirits License Bond
- Liquor License Bond
- Malt Beverage License Bond
- Wine Bond
- Liquor Drink Tax Bond
Alcohol Tax Bond by State
Since each state – in addition to federal laws – has the power to regulate the distribution, manufacturing, or selling of alcoholic beverages within its jurisdiction, the obligations per alcohol tax bond, and the amount will vary.
Some states have stricter alcohol tax bond requirements than others.
