Mesa County’s sales tax rate (for areas outside of our cities and towns) is 2%. That means two cents per $1.00 in retail sales is collected as a county tax. This tax was approved by local voters in 1981. Specifically, voters designated where this money should be spent. Here’s a breakdown of how that two cents is allocated:
- One cent is dedicated to capital and infrastructure improvements.
- .55 cents is distributed to the cities and towns within the county.
- .45 cents is dedicated to the county’s general fund.
*On January 1, 2018 the new Mesa County Public Safety Tax of 0.37% went into effect. *This tax was approved by local voters in November 2017. This tax is for all sales occurring in Mesa County.
In addition to the 2% county tax and the 0.37% public safety tax, the State of Colorado also has a 2.9% sales tax. Thus, unincorporated areas of Mesa County have a combined sales tax rate of 5.27%.
The cities and towns in Mesa County each have their own municipal sales tax, which is added on top of the 2% county tax and the 0.37% public safety tax:
