Colorado: Local Sales Tax Rate Changes, June 2014


 How do you keep track of rate changes in home-rule jurisdictions?

Two home-rule cities in Colorado have announced upcoming sales tax rate changes.

Town of Gypsum

The sales tax rate in the Town of Gypsum will drop to 3%, effective June 1, 2014. A 1% sales tax created to cover the costs of a new recreation center will be terminated due to the certification that “all such costs have been satisfied or canceled.”

The combined rate of sales tax for Gypsum will be 7.4%:

City of Montrose

Beginning June 1, 2014, all sales tax licensees in the City of Montrose must collect a new 0.3% sales tax, created to raise funds for the Montrose Recreation District (MRD). This special tax is slated to expire June 1, 2039.

The combined sales and use tax rate for the City of Montrose will be 7.95%:

  • 3.30%, City and MRD;
  • 1.75%, Montrose County; and
  • 2.9%, state of Colorado.

Keeping up with sales tax rate changes in home-rule cities can turn a person prematurely grey. Don’t call your hairstylist. Switch to an automated sales tax solution.
