Maryland Taxable Fuel Bond

What is a Taxable Fuel Bond?

The Comptroller of Maryland requires dealers, importers, exporters, special fuel sellers, and special fuel users to submit a surety bond along with their license class application.
The following are the types of licensees:

  • Class A – import, export, or buy gasoline from another person within the State of Maryland
  • Class B – import gasoline for personal use or redistribution
  • Class C – buy gasoline for export from a Comptroller-approved supplier
  • Class D – buy gasoline from a Class A licensee or another Class D licensee
  • Class F – sell turbine fuel
  • Class G (Temporary License) – buys gasoline from a seller that is approved by the Comptroller in the amount specified in the federal contract
  • Class S – sells special fuel
  • Class U – special fuel user

The purpose of the surety bond is to ensure that the licensee will promptly pay the necessary taxes due.
If the licensee defaults on tax payment, the Obligee of the surety bond will be able to recover the amount due by filing a bond claim.

What is the Taxable Fuel Bond amount?

The bond amount will vary per license class. This will be determined by the Comptroller of the State of Maryland.
