Fire Sprinkler System BondsCompanies specializing in the installation of several types of fire safety equipment in Washington are required to take out surety bonds. For example, there are no less than five different bonds needed for fire sprinkler system installation and maintenance, depending on the type of systems installed by the contractor.
Vice Tax BondsA number of states require so-called “vice” businesses to collect and remit taxes and fees to the state. In Washington, these businesses must post a surety bond to ensure the state receives payment. Examples include cigarette wholesalers, lottery ticket retailers, and domestic wineries.
Maritime BondsWith much of Washington’s productivity stemming from its Pacific Northwest shoreline, it’s only natural that there are several maritime-related bonds that are required of businesses. These include aquatic land lease bonds, fish dealers performance bonds, seller of travel bonds, vessel dealer bonds, and more.
City or County BondsThere are many cities and counties within Washington that require specific surety bonds. The city of Seattle, for example, has no less than six bond subtypes, all of which are related to public works, street and shore use, and real estate sales.
