Collecting Use Tax
The Rio Blanco County Motor Vehicle department collects the motor vehicle use tax at the time of registration. Motor vehicle use tax is due when:
  • If no sales tax was ever collected on the purchase of the vehicle
  • The seller does not have the authority to collect Rio Blanco County sales tax, such as, a private sale, the business is located outside of Rio Blanco County
For more information on motor vehicle registration, including requesting a refund of motor vehicle use tax, please refer to the Rio Blanco County Clerk’s Office.
