F.S. 562.25
562.25 State bonded warehouses.
(1) No operator of any storage warehouse shall accept for storage in such warehouse any alcoholic beverage subject to tax under the Beverage Law until such operator shall have obtained from the division a permit to store such beverage and shall have filed a bond payable to the division, conditioned upon the full compliance by such operator with the provisions of this section. This section shall not apply to a federal bonded warehouse owned wholly by, and operated solely for, a manufacturer or distributor licensed under the Beverage Law. Such permit shall issue upon the payment of $1 to the division, and may be refused, suspended, or revoked in the same manner and upon the same grounds that the license of a distributor may be refused, suspended, or revoked. Such bond shall be in an amount of not more than $5,000 nor less than $1,000, in the discretion of the division, with a surety company licensed to do business in the state as surety.
(2) On or before the 10th day of each month the operator of any state bonded warehouse shall report, on forms furnished by the division, the amount of such beverages on deposit in such warehouse on the last day of the previous calendar month and the amount of such beverages deposited in and withdrawn from such warehouse during the previous calendar month, except that no report shall be required as to such beverages on which all taxes have been paid which have been deposited in storage by a vendor licensed under the Beverage Law.
