Please remember that you must claim the state sales tax refund (TABOR refund) when filing your state income tax return. If you claimed a 2023 refund, the TABOR refund will be combined and issued out with your refund. Unlike the 2022 Colorado cashback, no separate check will be issued. 


Excise & Fuel Tax Payment

Additional Balance Due After Filing Return


After filing your tax return, if you receive a bill for an additional balance due, you should remit payment electronically, or mail a check/money order along with a payment voucher enclosed with the Statement of Account. For questions, contact the Excise Tax Unit or the Fuel Tax Unit.

Payment Options


Both Liquor excise tax and IFTA taxes can be paid by check/money order or electronic payment. Fuel Distributor, Cigarette, Nicotine Products, Retail Marijuana Sales, Retail Marijuana Excise, and Tobacco Product excise tax must be paid electronically. See below for additional information on each payment method.
