2011 Aspen Food Sales Tax Refund Available Now



2011 Aspen Food Sales Tax Refund Available Now


Contact: City Finance Department, 920-5040 for information or questions


Aspen, Colorado – January 11, 2012 – Aspen residents who lived within the city limits for the entire year of 2011 are eligible for a $50 Food Sales Tax Refund.  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.


Applications are available at the Finance Department window, first floor of City Hall at 130 S. Galena Street, on the web at http://www.aspenpitkin.com/Departments/Finance-City-of-Aspen/Food-Sales-Tax-Refunds/, or by calling Finance at 920-5040.  The deadline for applications is Monday, April 16th at 5:00 pm


If you were a registered voter prior to January 1, 2011, and your address has not changed, no further supporting documentation is required; however, you are still required to complete the application and submit it to Finance prior to the deadline. 


If you have never received a refund or your address has changed, you must provide proof you lived within the Aspen City limits for the entire year of 2011.  Accepted documentation includes: a signed lease, utility bills, or cancelled checks from January, 2011 and December, 2011 printed with your physical address.
