In addition to individual income tax and state and state-collected local sales tax, the Department of Revenue administers the taxes which are covered on the pages listed in the buttons on the left-side of this page.
Taxes We Do NOT Administer
- Estate Tax. Colorado estate tax is phased out after December 31, 2004 due to federal tax law changes. However, Colorado does have an income tax on estates and trusts.
- Gift Tax. There is no gift tax in Colorado.
- Local Taxes. In addition to state taxes, some counties, cities and special districts impose sales and use, lodging, and/or other taxes. For information on contacting city and county tax offices, see "Colorado Sales/Use Tax Rates" (DR 1002).
- Motor Vehicle Registration Tax. If you are a resident of Colorado and own or control the use of a motor vehicle in Colorado, you must title and register it in Colorado. Applications for titles and regular license plates are processed at the County Motor Vehicle office in the county where you reside. Check the Web site of your county. You may find a list of counties and links to their Web sites through Colorado Counties Inc. (CCI Online).
- Property Tax Information. Property taxes are administered by the county in which the property is located. At the state level, the Department of Local Affairs, Division of Property Taxation provides a support role for the counties. If you have questions about your property taxes, check the county listing in the blue pages of a local telephone book for the Colorado county property tax office that applies to you or find your county Web site through Colorado Counties Inc. (CCI Online).
