The Eagle Valley Transportation Authority tax is being administered by the Colorado Department of Revenue in the same manner as the State tax. The EVTA tax rate and exemptions can be looked up at https://tax.colorado.gov/sales-tax-rate-changes.
The EVTA sales tax rate is 0.50% and is separate from Eagle County sales tax. Please do not submit as part of the Eagle County sales tax. Visit Colorado Sales Tax Filing Information for forms and other information about submitting this tax to the state.
The sales tax needs to be collected by businesses in areas where the EVTA was approved by voters. These include:
Businesses in the Town of Gypsum will not be required to collect the new EVTA sales tax.
The EVTA will follow all of the State of Colorado's exemptions. The list of exemptions can be found at https://tax.colorado.gov/DR1002, which is updated at the end of December and the end of June each year.
The Eagle Valley Transportation Authority board will meet on Wednesday, Dec. 13. Agenda, Zoom link and information about providing public comment will be available on Dec. 8.
