The City of Steamboat has published the final July 2018 Sales, Use, and Accommodation Tax Report. (See the Full Report.) The July 2018 Mountain Communities Report is also available. (See the Full Report.)
City of Steamboat has published the final July 2018 Sales, Use, and
Accommodation Tax Report. City of Steamboat Springs’ July sales taxes showed a
nominal increase of 2.30% compared to the July 2017 collections or an increase
of $52,028. For the past 5 years, July collections represent about 9% of annual
collections. Year to date sales tax collection is 6.55% more than year to date
through July 2017.
Sales tax categories now include two new business sectors, “Construction & Home Improvement” and “Grocery Stores & Other Food Sellers”. These sectors were carved out of the “Miscellaneous Retail” category to provide more specific reporting.
Tax is now primarily dedicated to local trail projects since the Yampa Street
improvements portion of referendum 2A was completed last year. A small amount each
year is dedicated towards the marketing of these projects and capital
improvements at Haymaker. July collections were up 3.65% compared to the same
period last year. Year to date accommodations tax is up 8.67% compared to the
same period last year.
Building Use Tax is used to fund capital
projects for the City of Steamboat Springs. This tax fluctuates depending on building permits issued, use tax audits completed, and the size and number of developments in the City. July net use tax collections total $269,446. Year to date net use tax collections are down 23% through the same period last year due to larger project deposits collected in the prior year.
In an effort to improve customer service, the tax division unveiled a new Municipal Tax landing page that went live with the new city website. The webpage provides an efficient way for customers to access information on sales tax rates, online sales tax filing, construction use tax, excise tax on construction, vehicle use tax, and links to documents, reports and the sales tax code. We invite you to visit our new webpage!
