What documentation do I need to provide to prove I qualify?

If you have lived in Aspen for the full year but moved residences within the City limits:

 Proof of all new physical addresses (we have your previous address on file)

 Proof of address on Dec-31-2021

 Proof of registered voter address update


If you are barred from registering to vote (due to non-citizenship or felony conviction):

 Proof of all physical addresses in 2021, including address on 1/1/2021 & 12/31/2021

 Copy of your US Permanent Residency ‘Green’ Card or valid work visa (if applicable)


If you successfully received a food sales tax refund in 2020 and have not moved:

 No further documentation is required


If you have not moved and your registered voter address did not change:

 No further documentation is required


Voter Registration List:

The City of Aspen will have a Voter Registration List for all eligible voters registered prior to January 1st of the previous year. The Voter Registration List will be used as evidence that they were a registered voter of the City of Aspen for the full calendar year for which the refund applies. If the applicant’s current address is different than the registered voter address, proof of update of registered voter address change is required (i.e. you will need to update your voter address before submitting your Food Sales Tax Refund request form)
