The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has required a Bond of Citrus Fruit Dealers to Guarantee Payment of Citrus Inspection Fees. The required Bond amount varies between $1,000 and $10,000.
The Bond is in place to help ensure that the citrus dealer truly complies with the provisions of the Act and regulations promulgated and will well and truly account for all such Citrus Inspection Fees or other evidence of indebtedness with respect to such Citrus Inspection Fees to said Commissioner of Agriculture.
The Bond helps guarantee that the dealer will follow all regulations, rules, and laws. This Bond will protect the state by guaranteeing faithful and honest performance. The bond provides surety in regaining losses in fees, fines, and expenses imposed by state regulators. If there are any poor financial decisions, damages, or violating of any laws or regulations, this bond will be used in favor of the state.
