Wine Tax Bonds
What is a Wine Tax Bond?
A Wine Tax Bond is required for businesses engaged in the production, sale, and warehousing of wine. The bond guarantees that the business will pay taxes as required by the governing jurisdiction, often a state Alcohol Tax and Firearms Agency (ATF). These bonds are also known as ATF Bonds for this reason.
Also see the Alcohol Tax Bond (Federal/TTB) for federal wine surety bonds which are required by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) and may be classified as a TTB Bond.
