Food Tax Refund Deadline Applications due April 18


Food Tax Refund Deadline

Applications due April 18

 Aspen, Colo. – April 10, 2023 – The last day to submit food tax refund applications is Tuesday, April 18, 2023, at 5 p.m. If you haven’t already done so, please consider completing an application (found on the City’s website noted below) before the deadline as late applications cannot be accepted. The City of Aspen will continue reviewing all received applications during the month of April and residents can expect refund checks to be mailed by early May.

To qualify for the Food Sales Tax Refund all applicants must:

  • Submit the Food Sales Tax Refund application by the deadline 
  • Have resided within the Aspen city limits for the full 2022 year 
  • Have been registered to vote in the City of Aspen from 1/1/22-12/31/22  
  • Be able to prove residency within Aspen city limits for 2022 and if still living within the City, ensure your current address is the same as your registered voter address.  For persons barred from registering to vote, there are some exceptions to qualify. 

The City created Food Sales Tax Refunds as an incentive to encourage voters to support a sales tax referendum. It was intended to reimburse voters for the approximate amount of sales tax that they would pay annually on grocery purchases due to the imposition of a 1% City sales tax.

If you need assistance completing the application please visit the Finance window, second floor of City Hall at 427 Rio Grande Place.
