COVID-19 Relief for Bars, Restaurants, and Mobile Food Retailers

HB20b-1004 allows a temporary deduction from state net taxable sales for qualifying retailers primarily in the bar, restaurant and the mobile food services industries. The resulting state sales tax is allowed to be retained by the business permanently to provide assistance from business disruptions due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Who qualifies? 

The special deduction does not apply to any taxes imposed by any state-administered city, county, or special district. Retailers should contact self-collecting home-rule cities regarding any similar programs they may offer. Eligible retailers are required to collect all applicable state and state-administered local sales taxes, file returns on time, and pay all local sales taxes (in addition to state sales taxes in excess of the amount related to the special deduction).
