Sales, Use and Lodging Taxes
Sales and use taxes are the largest source of operating revenues for the City of Grand Junction. The City currently has over 4,300 vendors who are licensed and collect the City's sales tax on their business transactions. A business is required to collect the City's sales tax when it sells at retail tangible personal property inside the City limits. Of the 4,344 licensed vendors in the City, a few are also required to collect lodging tax (3%) which is used solely by the Visitors and Convention Bureau to promote tourism in the City.
The City's sales tax rate is currently 2.75%. The combined rate is 7.65% (2.9% State of Colorado, 2.0% Mesa County, 2.75% City of Grand Junction). The City licenses its vendors separately from the State. The State of Colorado (Mesa County) sales tax office can be reached at 970-248-7140. The City of Grand Junction Sales and Use Tax License no longer has an expiration date. The license is valid until it is canceled and is issued with the requirement that all City laws will be followed. If, for some reason, a business is not in compliance with those laws, the license can be suspended or revoked. To look up if an address is inside City limits an online search is available which contains the most up-to-date information. This is important to vendors who deliver goods, because the sales tax for those transactions is determined by the delivery address. When the delivery address is located inside the City limits, then the City sales tax is charged. If the delivery address is not located inside the City limits, then sales tax is not charged.
