Below is an excerpt from the Colorado Sales Tax Guide on “destination sourcing rules” when determining which sales tax rate applies to the transaction:
- If the purchaser takes possession of the purchased property or first uses the purchased service at the seller’s business location, the sale is sourced to that business location.
- If the property or service is delivered to the purchaser at a location other than seller’s business location, the sale is sourced to the location the purchaser receives the purchased property or first uses the purchased service.
- If the purchaser requests delivery of the property or service to another person, as a bona fide gift from the purchaser, the sale is sourced to the location that person takes possession of the purchased property or first uses the purchased service.
These sourcing rules do not apply to leased property. See Department Publication Sales & Use Tax Topics: Leases for sourcing rules for lease payments.
