Retail Sales Report

Colorado Sales Tax Return (Form DR 0100) data, including number of returns, gross sales, retail sales (gross sales minus wholesale sales), state net taxable sales, and state sales tax, are reported by industry, county, and city.

Most businesses file returns monthly, but some file quarterly or annually, which means that months at the end of the quarter (March, June, September, and December) or calendar year (December) will tend to have more returns and higher values.

Additional Information

Industry Definitions

The Department of Revenue uses the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), the standard used by Federal statistical agencies in classifying business establishments for the purpose of collecting, analyzing, and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy. Industry categories are reported to the Department of Revenue by the taxpayer, and they are not generally audited.
