Applications Available for Food Tax Refund
Apply online beginning today
Aspen residents who lived within city limits for the entire year of 2020 and who have been registered to vote since at least January 1, 2020 are eligible to apply for a $55 food tax refund, which is now available through an online application. Applicants are required to apply online to reduce paper use and expedite the administrative process.
To qualify for the Food Sales Tax Refund all applicants must:
Residents 65 or older and residents that are legally blind are eligible for additional refund payments. 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.
The online application and more information is available at https://www.cityofaspen.com/382/Food-Sales-Tax-Refunds.
If you need assistance completing the application, please visit the Finance Department window, located on the first floor of City Hall at 130 S. Galena Street.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday, April 15, 2021 at 5 p.m. Late applications will not be accepted.
