§ 58.1-3126

Bond of deputy; liability thereon

The treasurer may require from any deputy such bond with surety as he shall deem necessary for his indemnity. If any deputy fails to collect or, having collected, fails to pay over to his principal, any taxes, levies or funds which he ought to have collected or may have received, such deputy and his sureties shall be liable to such principal, upon motion, for the amount of the deficiency in such taxes, levies or funds, together with damages thereon at the rate of ten percent per month from the time each payment should have been made. They shall also be liable to such principal for all damages sustained by him by reason of any other default or misconduct in office by such deputy.
