City Collected Sales Tax
The City of Lafayette is a Home Rule City which means that the city portion of sales tax collected in Lafayette is remitted directly to the City of Lafayette, instead of being remitted to the State of Colorado for disbursement. As a Home Rule City, the City of Lafayette charges sales tax on some items that the State of Colorado does not. For instance, the City taxes food for domestic consumption, the State does not. Each vendor should read the Municipal Code, Section 110-121.
Exemptions to City sales tax is listed in the Municipal Code, Section 110-122. If it is not listed in the exemptions, it is taxable. Service type businesses are exempt from licensing if they do not sell any products. The business must have a sales tax license number from the State of Colorado before applying for a license with the City of Lafayette. There is no fee for the sales tax application/license. Approximate processing time for application approval is 2 weeks.
