Sales Tax Information

The City of Delta is a home rule city that collects and administers its own sales and use tax, which is currently 3%. You must obtain a Sales and Use Tax License in order to conduct business in the City of Delta. The annual Sales and Use Tax License fee is $10.00 (except for out of state vendors without a physical presence) and must accompany a completed Sales and Use Tax License Application. All licenses are for a calendar year and expire on the 31st of December. In addition, the Transfer or Commencement of Business Sales and Use Tax Return must be completed and any applicable taxes paid on personal tangible property brought into the City to conduct business. For more information, please refer to the Delta Municipal Code, Chapter 3.04, which pertains to sales and use tax. 

All Sales and Use Tax Returns must be postmarked no later than the 20th of the month following the reporting period. Even if no sales are reported or use tax is due, a return must be submitted for every reporting period.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Finance Department's Sales and Use Tax Division.
