Fuel Tax Bonds are individually underwritten so the cost can vary and is dependent on the credit reports of the applicant as well as personal financials and business financials. Customers with good personal credit scores (generally 680 or higher) and overall good financials could qualify for a rate as low as 1% of the bond amount. Of course, we will always provide you with the lowest rates available on the market. And can typically handle all credit types and financial situations — from excellent to poor — as such those terms vary.
Federal Fuel Tax Bonds are in place to ensure the payment of taxes imposed on fuel under Section 4041 or Section 4081 of the Internal Revenue Code by a specific date as determined by 26 U.S.C. Section 6151. By posting the bond the Principal is guaranteeing they will not attempt to defraud the United States of any tax; will file all returns and statements as required by law or regulations; will pay all taxes including any penalty and interest charges; and, will comply with all other requirements of the law and regulations regarding tax.
The U.S. Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service is charged with handling taxable fuel registration and requires certain applicants to post this fuel tax surety bond in pursuant to Title 26 Code of Federal Regulations Section 48.4101. The Obligee on this surety bond is the United States.
Federal Fuel Tax Bonds are continuous and remain in effect from the effective date until canceled or until the district director determines the registered applicant meets the adequate security test without a bond. The surety bond may be canceled with 60 days written notice from the Surety to the Principal (Fuel Registrant) and the Obligee (District Director of the Internal Revenue Service). The bonding company will renew and bill for the surety bond on an annual basis. It is likely that variations in business volume each year will require a different bond amount than the prior year, in which case an increase or decrease in the bond amount may be required by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service (IRS). They may then call for a strengthening bond or a superseding bond in this case.
