Colorado Sales Tax
Colorado imposes a sales/use tax of 2.9 percent, although many cities and counties as well as special taxing districts add local sales and use taxes on purchases and transactions. All county sales taxes are state collected. Most goods are subject to sales tax and most services are not taxed as long as the billing separates the two. The combined state and local sales tax rate varies from 3.7 to 7.2 percent depending upon the locality. Use taxes are due to the state by individuals who have purchased merchandise outside of Colorado such as Internet or catalog orders when sales tax has not been paid but the items will be "used" in Colorado. For complete details on sales and use taxes, contact:
