Liquor excise taxes are levied on manufacturers/wholesalers of alcoholic beverages that are sold, offered for sale, or used in the state. Because liquor excise taxes are required to be collected by the manufacturer/wholesaler and not individual retailers, only statewide information is available.
Beginning January 2019, licensing fee collection data was removed from monthly reports and will instead be summarized in the CDOR Annual Report. Additional taxes and fees on wine (Wine Development Fee, Colorado Winery Surcharge, and Colorado grape/produce $10/ton) were removed from monthly reports and will be summarized in the CDOR Annual Report.
