Sales Tax Waiver Form

"*" indicates required fields

Colorado and some local governments have specific criteria for charitable and governmental catering purchases to be exempt from sales tax. Before completing this form, please note that (a) catering when guests purchase tickets does not qualify for sales tax waiver, and (b) most out-of-state entities do not qualify for exemption from the state portion of sales tax. We work to follow state and local sales tax requirements as carefully as we can and apologize for the inconvenience of completing this form. We look forward to working with you!



Submissions must include Federal and Colorado sales tax exemption. Waiver of local sales tax depends on the rules in the local jurisdiction. We are unable to waive sales tax without all necessary supporting documentation.
Agencies of the State of Colorado, including educational institutions, can skip this step. We are required to have supporting documentation in our files if we waive local tax in a city that has its own sales tax exemption rules. FOR DENVER EVENTS: you may upload your IRS 501c3 determination letter or a relevant document from the Department of Finance.
