Sales Tax FAQ
Everything you need to know about paying sales tax in Mountain Village.
At this time, many have received communications from Airbnb about collecting sales tax. The Town of Mountain Village does not know the status of Airbnb collecting the lodging tax. "Pursuant to Ordinance 2020-13, any “marketplace facilitator” (AirBnB, VRBO, or any other third party acting as a paid intermediary between short-term property owner and a short-term renter) must be licensed with the Town and must collect and remit the 4.5% sales tax imposed upon short-terms rentals. However, property owners who short-term rent their properties are still required to collect and remit the 4% accommodation tax imposed upon the same rental. The Town is working on updating its forms, but will still expect to collect a tax total 8.5% of the total short-term rental fee."
The Town of Mountain Village was incorporated in accordance with a voter mandate as a Home Rule Municipality in March of 1995. On January 1, 2012, the Town of Mountain Village started self-collecting sales tax and implemented an online business revenue system called MUNIRevs. More information about our sales tax code can be found in chapter 3.04 of our Municipal Code.
Registration, business licensing and tax form submittals are all done online. Registration begins with applying on MUNIRevs and obtaining a business license. Certain businesses may be granted a “no fee” business license if they have no nexus in the Town of Mountain Village.
