About the Department
The Sales Tax and Accounting Department is responsible for administration of the Town's finances, budget, accounts receivable and accounts payable, local sales tax collection and employee benefits.
All businesses in Winter Park, including home-based businesses, are required to register with the Town of Winter Park and acquire a Business License. The Business License also serves as a Sales Tax License.
The Town of Winter Park is a home rule municipality where sales tax is administered and collected locally rather than by the State. The Colorado Department of Revenue has no jurisdiction over sales and use taxes imposed by home rule municipalities when the state does not administer its local taxes. Taxes collected for such areas must be remitted directly to the home rule jurisdiction.
The Colorado Department of Revenue is responsible for collecting and administering local sales taxes for Grand County. Sales taxes collected by vendors must be reported on the "Colorado Retail Sales Tax Return" (DR 0100) and remitted to the Colorado Department of Revenue.
