Colorado to Begin Taxing Out-of-State Retailers

September 12, 2018

The Colorado Department of Revenue has adopted temporary emergency regulations to require out-of-state retailers that are doing business in Colorado and have substantial nexus with the state to collect Colorado sales or use tax beginning December 1, 2018. Out-of-state retailers are considered to have a substantial nexus with Colorado for sales tax purposes if the retailer’s gross revenue from the sale of tangible personal property or services delivered into Colorado exceeds one hundred thousand dollars or the retailer sold tangible personal property or services for delivery into Colorado in two hundred or more separate transactions.  The temporary emergency regulations will proceed through the rulemaking process until they are made permanent by the Department later this year.
