Utah Alcohol Tax BondEvery individual or business entity is required to apply for a permit and file a bond before starting a business that pertains to selling, manufacturing, distributing, importing, exporting, or distributing alcoholic beverages in the State of Utah. The requirement is mandated by the Alcohol, Tobacco, Tax, and Trade Bureau.

The bond is created 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 Utah.

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 Utah.

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 unique to the state or the type of alcoholic beverage. Here are some examples:

  • Liquor Bond
  • Alcoholic Beverage Tax Bond

  • Distilled Spirits License Bond
