The Town of Vail is a home rule municipality that collects its own sales tax. Sales tax within the town is a total of 8.4 percent, with the exception of short-term lodging which is 9.8 percent after the addition of a 1.4 percent local marketing district tax. The 1.4 percent Vail Local Marketing District tax is charged for rooms or accommodations within Vail town boundaries and used for marketing Vail's summer season. The State of Colorado collects the state tax, the Eagle County tax and the Vail Local Marketing District Tax.
