  • DR 5002, Declaration of Wholesale or Entity Sales Tax Exemption. The purpose of this revised form is to consolidate the information from the following forms, and to make grammatical, stylistic, and organizational changes to improve its clarity and readability. While this draft form includes both wholesale and entity exemptions, the Department is considering whether these two groups should have separate forms. Please note that the Multistate Tax Commission’s Uniform Sales & Use Tax Resale Certificate is also an option for documenting wholesale purchases.
    • DR 5002, Standard Colorado Affidavit of Exempt Sale. This is the current form that we are proposing to revise.
    • DR 0563, Sales Tax Exemption Certificate Multi - Jurisdiction. This form is proposed to be eliminated. 
    • DR 1367, Affidavit of Sales Paid by Government Credit Card. This form is proposed to be eliminated.
    • DR 1191, Sales Tax Exemption on Purchases of Machinery and Machine Tools. This form is proposed to be eliminated.
    • DR 1192, Colorado Machinery and Machine Tools State Sales Tax Exemption Declaration. This form is proposed to be eliminated.
  • Whether wholesale and entity exemptions should be combined on one form or kept on separate forms
    • DR 0563, Declaration of Wholesale Exemption. This purpose of this alternate revised form would be to provide one separate form for wholesale exemptions.
    • DR 1367, Declaration of Entity Exemption. This purpose of this alternate revised form would be to provide one separate form for entity exemptions.

What is a workgroup?

A workgroup is a forum for the Department to gather information from the public for the development of new rules or forms or for the revision of existing rules or forms. The workgroup consists of individuals who have knowledge of the issues being discussed. The workgroup members will be asked to provide their input and insight, along with constructive feedback and suggestions, in an open discussion format.
