Business & Sales Tax Licenses

Effective November 5th, Vail sales tax collection and business licensing is going paperless with a new online payment portal!

A new online collection system—MUNIRevs—will replace our current ePay system. Existing license holders will be mailed and emailed additional instructions to access their accounts. Please note, the current online filing system will be disabled beginning October 28th during this transition. The new system will go live on November 5th.

For more information, please contact the sales tax administrator Alex Jakubiec at


Sales Tax Licenses

The Town of Vail is a home rule municipality that collects its own sales tax. Sales tax within the town is a total of 8.4 percent, with the exception of short-term lodging which is 9.8 percent after the addition of a 1.4 percent local marketing district tax. The 1.4 percent Vail Local Marketing District tax is charged for rooms or accommodations within Vail town boundaries and used for marketing Vail's summer season. The State of Colorado collects the state tax, the Eagle County tax and the Vail Local Marketing District Tax.

A Vail sales tax license is required when a person is engaged in business within the town and selling retail in the town, tangible personal property or services that are taxable. A sales tax license with the town is no charge. Sales tax is due to the Town of Vail the 20th of the following month and the town does not offer a vendors fee. The application for a sales tax license and the sales tax remittance form are included in the forms section of this Web site.
