COVID-19 CITY OF FORT COLLINS SALES TAX RELIEF PROGRAM
To assist businesses affected by the economic impact of COVID-19, the City of Fort Collins has announced that qualified business taxpayers can defer tax payments for 60 days. Tax payments that are currently due on April 20th or May 20th will be extended to June 22nd, interest and penalties will also be waived for approved businesses. The 60-day deferral applies only to sales tax payments associated with filing dates during the months of March and April. Please note that taxpayers that can pay, should pay, and that all taxpayers are still required to file on-time monthly returns even if their payments are deferred.
Businesses must apply to the Sales Tax Department via U2FsZXN0YXhAZmNnb3YuY29t and receive a positive confirmation to be approved for deferred payments.
Businesses will qualify based on:
- Having an average monthly sales tax remittance in 2019 of $2,000 or less; or
- If a business’s current tax filings are $2,000 or less per month.
