Sales Tax

The Town of Winter Park is a home rule municipality where sales tax is administered and collected locally rather than by the State. The Colorado Department of Revenue has no jurisdiction over sales and use taxes imposed by home rule municipalities when the state does not administer its local taxes. Taxes collected for such areas must be remitted directly to the home rule jurisdiction.

The Colorado Department of Revenue is responsible for collecting and administering local sales taxes for Grand County. Sales taxes collected by vendors must be reported on the "Colorado Retail Sales Tax Return" (DR 0100) and remitted to the Colorado Department of Revenue.
