If a business owner has their State of Colorado sales tax license and they have been doing business in another Colorado location, and they now wish to open a business in Fort Morgan, they must first find a business location and visit the City's Planning and Zoning Department to ensure compliance with the City's zoning requirements. The business owner must also notify the State of Colorado, Department of Revenue, of the location change and file the appropriate address change forms with the State.
If Planning and Zoning tells the business owner that all requirements are met, they must complete a City of Fort Morgan Sales Tax License Application
and send it along with a copy of the completed forms to the State. Once a new license is received from the State, a copy must be provided to the City Clerk's
office located at:
110 Main St.
Fort Morgan, CO 80701
The new City sales tax license must be posted in a conspicuous place in the business.
