Sales Tax

Colorado has many home-rule cities, which collect their own sales tax. In The Black can help! We are knowledgeable on how to make sure QuickBooks is set up correctly and the best ways to keep track of all the new rules and file at the state and local level.


A bookkeeper takes all of your invoices, receipts, and other financial paperwork, and then analyzes the data, condensing the material down to just a few short reports.

These reports can help you monitor your business’ progress and growth, show profits or losses, and can help you plan for the future of your company.

Sales Tax

When South Dakota won their court case against Wayfair, Inc., in 2018, most states changed their sales tax rules. Before the ruling, a business needed to have a physical presence in a location to collect sales tax. Now, each state can stipulate their own rules and many of them have done so. The idea behind the court case was that states were losing sales-tax revenue to online retailers. The case allowed states to put the responsibility on the businesses and force them to collect and submit sales tax based on the location where the item is delivered.

Colorado also changed collection of sales tax to where the item is delivered when House Bill 19-1240 was passed. Unless you are a small business with less than $100,000 in sales, this now applies to you. Colorado has one of the most complicated sales tax systems in the U.S. Did you know some cities span more than one county which means there are different tax rates based on the address? With 64 counties and over 420 cities, each with their own tax rate. For a small business owner, that is a lot to keep track of.

Our Sales Tax Services Include:
• Making sure QuickBooks© has each state, county and city tax item and group set up correctly
• Determining if you should be reporting monthly, quarterly or annually. Each entity you file with will be different
• Setting up online reporting whenever possible
• Reviewing your sales tax liabilities to make sure everything is current
• Filing each state and local report
• Setting up new jurisdictions at the state and city level when new customer's are added in locations not already set up
