Aspen food tax deadline looms

Staff report

April 15 is the deadline for Aspen residents to submit their food tax reimbursement applications.

Those eligible are residents who lived within the Aspen city limits for all of 2013 and are registered voters. They and their dependents are eligible for a $50 food sales tax refund. Residents 65 or older and those who are legally blind are eligible for additional refund payments.

For the year ending Dec. 31, 2013, all applicants will be required to be a registered voter in the city of Aspen by Jan. 1 to qualify for the refund. Limited exceptions for people barred from registering to vote may qualify.
