Florida Fuel Tax / Pollutants Tax Surety Bond

What Is A Fuel Tax Bond?

A Fuel Tax Bond is a type of surety bond needed for fuel companies to obtain licensing. It is required for those planning to sell, import, export, mix, or supply fuel. It guarantees your company’s compliance with all state regulations, in addition to payment of taxes to the state you are obtaining your license in. Contrary to popular belief, this bond is put in place not to protect you, but rather the state and your clients from any violations or misrepresentation on your part.

Fuel Tax Bonds are individually underwritten, and as such, prices may vary quite a bit. Your premium will largely be determined by credit and financials and may be as low as 0.5% of the bond amount (the maximum bond amount currently set at $300,000).

Due to a recent change in the Florida legislature (see Chapter 2020-10 in Laws of Florida regarding Taxation), the required maximum bond amount has been increased from $100,000 to $300,000 and is effective July 1, 2020. Per a notice from the Department of Revenue, “if your current bond amount is less than three months of tax liability, you will be required to obtain or increase an existing bond up to $300,000.” The bond amount will be set at approximately three times your average monthly tax from the previous year.

If you are a terminal supplier, importer, exporter, or wholesaler of fuel in Florida, you will be required to obtain a surety bond. Each license requires a separate bond (i.e., motor fuel, diesel fuel, aviation fuel, and pollutants). Exceptions for this bond requirement may be granted for municipalities, counties, school boards, state agencies, federal agencies, or special districts.
