The Colorado Department of Revenue ("the Department") has just issued a "News Release" that has extended their grace period for in-state and out-of-state retailers from the current March 31, 2019 deadline to May 31, 2019. The Department previously indicated that retailers that do not collect sales tax during the grace period must still comply with Colorado’s reporting statute (C.R.S. § 39-21-112(3.5)) which requires non-collecting retailers to provide certain notices to Colorado purchasers as well as to the Department of Revenue. The Department had also previously stated that the reporting requirements for retailers that do not collect tax during the grace period will be strictly enforced. This news release does not rescind these previous statements regarding the reporting statute.
