The minimum surety bond requirement is $2,000 and the maximum $50,000.  The bond guarantees that the principal will pay all or any amount required to be collected, including interest and penalty(ies) which become due under the Sales and Use Tax Laws or Ordinances.  Surety One, Inc., will issue these for all applicants regardless of credit condition.
