A sales tax license is not required by the County – this is obtained from the State of Colorado Department of Revenue because the Department of Revenue administers and collects Clear Creek County tax. All sales tax and lodging tax collected is remitted to the State and then distributed by the State to the County. To obtain a sales tax license with the State of Colorado or for specific questions about sales tax, visit the Colorado Department of Revenue, www.revenue.state.co.us ,or call 303-238-7378.
