Colorado Mobile Businesses and Sales Tax


 Mobile Business in Colorado? You still have to collect sales tax.

Do you sell stuff out of a truck in Colorado? Whether it’s tacos or toothpaste, if the answer is yes, the Colorado Department of Revenue considers you ever bit as legitimate as a business with a physical storefront. In other words, it wants you to collect and remit sales tax.

A recent Colorado Department of Revenue weblog reminds mobile vendors that they must:

  • Have a sales tax license affiliated with a permanent address;
  • Display that sales tax license in the vehicle;
  • Report “to the department their non-physical sites for every jurisdiction where they make sales;”
  • Collect and remit the “the applicable local taxes for the areas in which they make sales.”

Don’t make employees of the Colorado Department of Revenue get in their cars and chase you down. Switch to an automated sales tax solution and keep your business on the move.
