Denver Sales Tax Rate Change, January 2015
- Sales Tax Rate Changes
- Nov 13, 2014 | Gail Cole
Denver voters approved a sales and use tax rate increase on November 4, 2014, to fund Denver preschool programs. The local increase will take effect on January 1, 2015.
As a result, the standard sales and use tax rate for Denver will increase from 3.62% to 3.65%. This also impacts the Denver combined retail marijuana sales tax rate, which will increase from 7.12% to 7.15%.
The rate increase will not apply to the following:
- Food and beverage sales tax (taxed at 4%)
- Car rental sales tax (taxed at 7.25%)
- Other Denver taxes, such as lodgers tax
Colorado State sales and use tax rates will not be affected by the Denver increase.
The Denver Department of Finance advises retailers to “prepare your systems in preparation for this sales and use tax rate change….” Additional information.
