On-Line Shoppers & Businesses Have a New Fee to Pay to the State in Colorado

(Colorado) -- it's fairly new. Maybe you haven't even noticed it because you haven't shopped on line to have something brought to your home or businesses.

Colorado is now requiring a special retail delivery fee to be paid for anything that a motor vehicle drives to your home or business. It started July 1st of 2022.

According to the site,, it applies to at least one item of tangible personal property subject to state sales or use tax.

It's up to the retailer or place who sold you the product to collect the fee and turn it into the state. Here's the exact way it should happened according to the site:

  • The retail delivery fee is due at the same time as a business would complete the sales tax return.

  • Retailers permitted to file state sales tax returns on a quarterly, annual, or other basis will file the retail delivery fee return on the same schedule.

  • The retail delivery fee will be reported and paid on a new return, form DR 1786. The retail delivery fee is collected state-wide, does not need to be separated by jurisdiction, and is calculated per sale.

  • The retail delivery fee is made up of six different fees. The rates are listed below.

And to clear up any confusion, here's a video that the state of Colorado produced to show you what you, as a business owner, must do to be compliant with the delivery fee program.
