A Nonresident Contractor's Tax Bond is required to operate legally in a state in which the contractor does not maintain a place of business. This bond ensures that the contractor pays such taxes as: sales and use taxes, state income taxes, income taxes, corporation franchise taxes, unemployment insurance taxes to the state or sales and use taxes or occupational taxes to local municipalities.

States such as Delaware, Nebraska, Connecticut, Wyoming, Louisiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Massachusetts, and Georgia may have a license or registration and bond requirement for nonresident (or non-resident) contractors.
