Question: Does Colorado have a service fee for retailers?
The Colorado state sales tax Service Fee (also known as the Vendor's Fee) has been restored and the rate is 2.22%. The fee may be claimed on timely filed and paid sales tax returns submitted on or after July 1, 2011.

This applies to state sales tax, state retailers use tax, and Regional Transportation District (RTD), Scientific and Cultural District (CD), Baseball District (BD) sales tax. The service fee rates for state-collected cities, counties and other special districts are not changed. Service rates for state-collected local jurisdictions are listed in the publication Colorado Sales/Use Tax Rates (DR 1002). The service/vendor's fee does not change the Colorado state sales/use tax rate which is 2.9%.

The service fee may be kept by the licensee ONLY if the tax return is filed and paid on time.

You can now file a Colorado tax return online. View previously filed returns, verify payments made on the account, make payments, file protests and more using Revenue Online.
