This bond ensures that all taxes required by KRS (Kentucky Revised Statutes) §138.660 will be paid by the motor carrier.
The transportation cabinet determines whether or not a motor carrier will be at risk for not paying the required highway use tax. In which case, they will be required to get this bond. If the motor carrier has violated the highway use tax requirements in the past, they may also be required to get this bond.
The bond amount is equal to 4 months tax liability or $1,000 whichever is greater. Or the bond may be based on how many vehicles you operate. The KY Transportation Cabinet will determine the required amount of your bond. For the bond amount of $1,000 the premium is $100 + $1.80 KY State fee= $101.80 per 1 year term, other bond amounts would be based on credit and experience.

I have processed 2 defective title bonds through South Coast Surety and I am the type that gets worried for any little detail and want to make sure everything is done correctly the first time to prevent double work for myself and everybody. Knowing how I am both times I had to call customer service and they answered every little question I had in a very nice and gratifying way that made me feel I would not have any problems in which I did not. South Coast Surety has the ultimate best customer service.

I was shopping for a surety bond for the first time and having trouble communicating with several different companies. When I contacted South Coast Surety they responded quickly and performed the transaction quick and easy. I might have been able to find a lower price, but their professionalism was worth a couple extra dollars.

We are opening up a Mental Health Residential Treatment Center and needed a Surety bond since we will be handling some clients cash resources. I reached out to South Coast Surety, they sent me an application, paid our premium and had our bond sent to us immediately. Everyone I spoke to and emailed was courteous, attentive and responded very quickly. We will most definitely continue to get all of our bond services from South Coast.

I was in need of obtaining my CA Insurance Bond. I was able to obtain my required Bond quote online within minutes. I approved the quote and requested the Bond to be issued. On the same day, I received the Evidence of Coverage. Could not ask for better pricing or better service. I highly recommend South Coast Surety to meet a wide range of Bonding needs.
