The North Carolina Tax Bond for Cigarettes is required by the North Carolina Department of Revenue for those who would distribute cigarettes in the state. A cigarette is defined as any of the following:
- A roll of tobacco wrapped in paper or in a substance that does not contain tobacco.
- A roll of tobacco wrapped in a substance that contains tobacco and that, because of its appearance, the type of tobacco used in the filler, or its packaging and labeling, is likely to be offered to or purchased by a consumer.
What is the purpose of North Carolina Tax Bond for Cigarettes?
The bond may be required as a form of security for the state in case of loss if the distributor fails to pay the taxes due to them. The bond states the bondholder will properly perform all of his duties and discharge all of his liabilities under the provisions of the North Carolina Tobacco Products Tax Act. The amount for the bond varies, as it must be two times the distributor’s average expected monthly tax liability. It must be at least $2,000 but not more than $2,000,000.
