Ignacio, CO—August 20, 2015—The Southern Ute Indian Tribe’s Tribal Information Services Department reminds Southern Ute Indian tribal members and Ute Mountain Ute tribal members of their on-Reservation sales tax exemption. Last year, Colorado Governor Hickenlooper signed HB14-1080 into law. HB14-1080 codified the Colorado Department of Revenue’s long-standing position, consistent with federal law, that on-Reservation sales to Southern Ute and Ute Mountain Ute tribal members are exempt from State sales tax. “Reservation” means either the Southern Ute Indian Reservation or the Reservation of the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe. The Tribe has reminded Four Corners Motorcycle Rally vendors of the exemption. To claim the exemption, tribal members should show their tribal membership card when making a purchase.
