Vacation Rentals






Vacation Rentals

Do you own a vacation or short-term rental? These properties, or a portion thereof, still qualify for the residential assessment rate; however, the assessor is required to assess all personal property used in connection with the property. Property owners must complete the appropriate forms (see Personal Property) by April 15.

Do you have a special event planned? If so, don’t forget the sales tax. This applies to gun and gem shows, renaissance festivals, or craft and county fairs. The vendors operating at these events should be collecting the county’s sales tax. The Colorado Department of Revenue (CDOR) asks that you notify them of these events. They can reach out to the event organizers BEFORE the event and make sure vendors know the sales tax rate they should be collecting. They can also send out sales tax agents to ensure sales taxes are being collected. CDOR’s special event compliance agent is Jamie Nicolelli. Send an email to her at jamie.nicolelli@state.co.us with the date, time and the event information. Make sure to include the event location code from the DR0800 and the event organizer’s name, phone number and email address if you have it.
