Financial Services Bonds

Businesses that provide financial services like collection agencies, credit services organizations, licensed debt management, check sellers, and mortgage bankers need specific surety bonds to be in place before providing those services to the public.

Motor Vehicle Sales

Under Nebraska law, businesses need to secure a surety bond for many activities involving the sale of motor vehicles, including selling motor vehicles at wholesale, selling trailers, or selling motorcycles. These businesses must purchase a $50,000 surety bond before being licensed by the state. Additionally, motor vehicle auction dealers need a $100,000 bond before conducting business in Nebraska.

Liquor Tax Bonds

Nebraska, like many other states, regulates the sale of alcoholic beverages and requires bonds from companies to ensure that liquor taxes are collected and paid to the state. Businesses such as brewers, manufacturers, beer and liquor wholesalers, farm wineries, and micro-distilleries all need to file liquor tax bonds with the State of Nebraska Liquor Control Commission.

Private Education Bonds

The Cornhusker State requires a number of private educational institutions to purchase surety bonds so that students can be compensated for lost tuition if the school goes out of business. These include private postsecondary career schools and their agents, driver training schools, and emergency medical training agencies.

City and County Bonds

In many different municipalities around the state, companies need to hold surety bonds for a number of activities. These licenses, which are regulated at the local level and must be filed with the applicable city or county, include bond requirements for city street excavation, pawnbroker operation, plumbing work, and the lease or use of public property.

Notary Public Bonds

Nebraska notary publics must file a $15,000 surety bond to receive a notary commission from the Secretary of State. Notary commissions and the accompanying bond run for four years.
