How does the Alcohol Tax Bond work?
With these types of bonds, if the business owner fails to meet their obligations, such as paying proper taxes, then the government agency can file a claim against the bond. If the claim is deemed valid by the surety company, then a payment will be issued. The principal, or business owner who purchased the bond, will then be responsible for reimbursing the surety company for the amount paid toward the claim. The penalty can be as much as the total amount of the bond.
