Colorado Seeks to Simplify Sales and Use Tax System

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Colorado State Capitol Building.

The Colorado Legislature recently passed a bill directing the Colorado Department of Revenue (DOR) to research an electronic sales and use tax simplification system.

The bill states that the system should provide (1) accurate address information so that retailers can determine the correct taxing jurisdiction for their sales, (2) a single application process for state and local tax licenses, (3) a uniform sales and use tax remittance form, (4) a single point of remittance for state and local sales and use tax, and (5) a matrix showing taxable and exempt items.

The bill requires the DOR to (1) identify initial costs for the system; (2) explain how the system could interface with accounting systems used by retailers; (3) allow for various payment options to pay for the cost of the system; (4) anticipate that sales and use tax rates may change, and maintain a history of those changes; and (5) anticipate that local jurisdictional boundaries may change over time, and maintain a history of those changes.
