Sales Tax
Sales taxes are due on newly purchased vehicles. If purchased from a dealer, a portion or all of the sales taxes due are collected by the dealer. Any unpaid sales taxes are collected by the County Clerk. If purchased from a private party, all sales taxes are collected by the County Clerk. Sales tax is collected on the purchase price of the vehicle at the following rates:
  • 2.9% State Tax
  • 3.6% Countywide Tax
Leased vehicles are not exempt sales tax. If leased within Colorado, the state tax is collected in the lease payments, but the county use tax on the total lease payments is collected at the time of titling.
