(See Also: Sales Tax Bond)
A Taxpayer bond is a type of financial guarantee surety bond. Taxpayer bonds are required by some state governments of contractors. The bond provides a form of guarantee that the state taxes due will be paid in a timely manner.
There are different scenarios where a taxpayer bond may be required. The bonds are sometimes required when a contractor applies for licensing. The bond can also be required for specific contracts as well as in cases where the contractor has tax payment delinquency issues.
The state government agency requiring the bond will usually determine the bond amount required. The bond amounts may vary depending on the reason the bond is being required. At times, the bond amount will be based on the average monthly tax liability of the contractor for a set period of time or based on the contract amount for contract related taxpayer bonds.
Taxpayer bonds are typically simple and easy to process. Smaller bond amounts may only require the bond application and a credit check. In some instances, financials will be required. A Viking agent will let you know exactly what is needed to get the best quote for your taxpayer bond.
