PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Food Tax Refund Applications Now Available
Apply online beginning Friday, January 7

Aspen, Colo. – Friday, January 7, 2022 – Aspen residents who lived within city limits for the entire year of 2021 and who have been registered to vote since at least January 1, 2021, are eligible to apply for a $55 food tax refund, which is now available as 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:

  • Submit the Food Sales Tax Refund application by the deadline of April 18, 2022
  • Have resided within the Aspen city limits for the entire 2021 year
  • Have been registered to vote in the City of Aspen from January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021 
  • Be able to prove residency within Aspen city limits for 2021, and if still living within the city, ensure your current address is the same as your registered voter address.

Residents 65 or older and residents that are legally blind are eligible for additional refund payments.  There are some exceptions for persons barred from registering to vote to qualify.

The City of Aspen 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 they would pay annually on grocery purchases due to the imposition of a 1% city sales tax. 

For an application and more information, visit aspen.gov/382/Food-Sales-Tax-Refunds.

If you need assistance completing the application please visit the Finance window, second floor of City Hall at 427 Rio Grande Place.  

The deadline for applications is Monday, April 18, 2022, at 5 p.m.  Late applications will not be accepted.
