Due to issues caused by the Crowdstrike update, the Colorado Department of Revenue, Taxation Division is experiencing service disruptions. There currently is no timeline for when service levels are fully restored.


DR 1285 - Non-Participating Manufacturer Brands Reporting Form


Form DR 1285 is designed to track all NPM cigarettes and RYO that enter Colorado, are transferred to another distributor/wholesaler within Colorado, and are exported to another distributor/wholesaler out of Colorado. This report must be completed by a licensed distributor:

  • Selling NPM manufactured cigarettes in Colorado and affixing the Colorado cigarette tax stamp; or
  • Selling tax paid NPM manufactured RYO in Colorado; or
  • Selling tax exempt NPM cigarettes and RYO in Colorado; or
  • Transferring any NPM cigarettes or RYO to another distributor/wholesaler within Colorado; or
  • Exporting any NPM cigarettes and RYO to another distributor/wholesaler outside of Colorado.

A separate form for each non-participating manufacturer is preferable, but not required. A computer-generated form is allowed ONLY if pre-approved by the Department.
