A. Indemnifying bond required of manufacturers, bottlers or wholesalers of beer and wine coolers.

1. No license shall be issued to a manufacturer, bottler or wholesaler of beer or wine coolers unless there shall be on file with the board, on a form approved or authorized by the board, an indemnifying bond running to the Commonwealth in the penalty of not less than $1,000 or more than $100,000, with the licensee as principal and some good and responsible surety company authorized to transact business in the Commonwealth as surety, conditioned upon the payment of the tax imposed by § 4.1-236 of the Code of Virginia and in accordance with the provisions thereof and § 4.1-239.

2. A manufacturer, bottler or wholesaler of beer or wine coolers may request in writing a waiver of the surety and the bond by the board. The board may withdraw such waiver at any time for failure to comply with §§ 4.1-236 and 4.1-239 of the Code of Virginia.

B. Shipment of beer and wine coolers to installations of the armed forces.

1. Installations of the United States Armed Forces shall include, but not be limited to, all United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, Coast Guard, Department of Defense and Veteran Administration bases, forts, reservations, depots, or other facilities.

2. The direct shipment of beer and wine coolers from points outside the geographical confines of the Commonwealth to installations of the United States Armed Forces located within the geographical confines of the Commonwealth for resale on such installations shall be prohibited. Beer and wine coolers must be shipped to duly licensed Virginia wholesalers who may deliver the same to such installations, but the sale of such beer and wine coolers so delivered shall be exempt from the excise tax on beer and wine coolers only if the sale thereof meets the exemption requirements of § 4.1-236 of the Code of Virginia.

C. Filing of monthly report and payment of tax falling due on Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday; filing or payment by mail.

1. When the last day on which a monthly report may be filed or a tax may be paid without penalty or interest falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, then any report required by § 4.1-239 of the Code of Virginia may be filed or such payment may be made without penalty or interest on the next succeeding business day.

2. When remittance of a monthly report or a tax payment is made by mail, receipt of such report or payment by the person with whom such report is required to be filed or to whom such payment is required to be made, in a sealed envelope bearing a postmark on or before midnight of the day such report is required to be filed or such payment made without penalty or interest, shall constitute filing and payment as if such report had been filed or such payment made before the close of business on the last day on which such report may be filed or such tax may be paid without penalty or interest.

D. Rate of interest. Unless otherwise specifically provided, interest on omitted taxes and refunds under the excise tax provisions of Title 4.1 of the Code of Virginia shall be computed in the same manner specified in § 58.1-15 of the Code of Virginia.
