Why do you need a surety bond?

The surety bond is in place to protect consumers from financial losses if a dealer fails to comply with the law or misappropriates consumer funds. For example, if a dealer collects sales taxes from consumers but fails to remit them to the state, the surety company that issued the bond will be liable for the unpaid taxes. Similarly, if a dealer misappropriates a consumer’s deposit, the surety company will be liable for the loss. The Illinois motor vehicle dealer bond guarantees that the dealer will comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including:

  • Collecting and remitting sales taxes and registration fees
  • Issuing temporary registration plates
  • Processing title transfers
  • Handling vehicle registrations and renewals
  • Responding to customer inquiries and complaints

If the surety company pays a claim on the bond, it will seek restitution from the bond principal (licensee).
