  • Business Licenses

    Every person engaged in business in Westminster must comply with the city’s licensing and tax laws.  All businesses must apply for a Westminster Business and or Sales and Use Tax License.  The license required depends on what the business will be doing in the City.  Westminster also administers and collects its own local taxes.  The Sales Tax Division administers all provisions of the Westminster Municipal Code pertaining to taxation.  Westminster tax and licensing laws may differ from those of other local governments and from the State of Colorado.
