Employee Dishonesty Bond – Instant Online Approval – No Credit Check Required
The PTIN Employee Dishonesty Bond Program is made possible through the endorsement of the National Directory of Registered Tax Return Preparers & Tax Professionals, Maximus Insurance Agency and CNA Surety. This program is offered to any PTIN registrant that meets the criteria required through the application process.

The dishonesty bond provides the insured with coverage against a dishonest act by an employee. The clients to the insured's service are also protected against a dishonest act by an employee: however, a client does not have a direct right to recovery. CNA Surety only agrees to indemnify the insured for any loss of money or other property which it sustains or for which it becomes liable to any client through any fraudulent or dishonest act committed by its employees. The employee must be convicted of the dishonest act before coverage would apply. Click here to view the sample bond.

Rates for a tax office or firm with 5 or fewer employees start at less than $100/year. Rates are determined by the number of employees employed and the amount of coverage desired. The bond offered by CNA Surety is made available through Western Surety Company of Sioux Falls, SD, an affiliate of CNA.
