The Town of Dillon implemented an ordinance specifically regulating Short-Term Rentals (STRs).  Town Council discussed this subject at several work sessions from September through December 2018, sent out a mailing on the proposed ordinance and held a public input meeting on October 4, 2018.  The ordinance implementing the new STRs licensing application, fee and regulations within the Town limits was approved by Council on December 4, 2018 and became effective January 1, 2019.  However, the STR license application and fee is not due until April 1, 2019. 

  • If you are renting your residence or part of your residence for a period of less than 30 consecutive days, you are operating a short-term rental.  
  • All owners renting their property for a period of less than 30 days must apply for a short-term license and pay a fee of $50 by April 1 of each year. 
  • All short-term rental licenses expire on March 31 of each year. The calendar year fee is $50 regardless of when the license is obtained. No refund shall be made to any person who discontinues business during the taxable year and no payment shall be transferable.
  • The person or company remitting the sales and lodging taxes must also obtain a business license and pay an occupational tax of $60 by January 1 of each year. 

All income from short-term rentals in the Town of Dillon is subject to an 8.875% sales tax and a 2% lodging tax. A sales tax license must be obtained from the Colorado Department of Revenue.  Sales tax is remitted to the State of Colorado.  Sales tax applications can be downloaded from the Colorado Department of Revenue website at or by contacting them at (303) 232-2416.  The lodging tax is remitted directly to the Town of Dillon. Forms must be filled out regardless if any income was generated and remittance forms are due by the 20th of the month for the preceding month.   If you file your sales tax on a quarterly basis, you may also file your lodging tax quarterly.  The payments are then due by the 20th of the month following the end of the month or quarter.  The State of Colorado will determine your filing frequency.
