Marijuana Tax Data

The marijuana tax reports are based on actual revenue collected monthly as posted in the Colorado state accounting system. Taxes for the filing period are collected the month following the close of the reporting period.  For example, taxes incurred in January are collected in February.

Beginning March 9, 2016 the marijuana tax data reporting format changed.  The new formatted reports include total marijuana tax revenue, medical and retail marijuana 2.9% sales tax, and retail marijuana 10% special sales tax.

In order to release information publicly, some data are aggregated such that it prevents the identification of a specific taxpayer return.  Some data are not releasable due to this confidentiality requirement.

For information about the distribution of marijuana tax collections, please see the Disposition of Marijuana Tax Revenue webpage.

For inquiries regarding these reports, please contact the Office of Research and Analysis.
