The Town of Parker’s laws regarding tax exemption may differ from other taxing authorities, and charitable organizations requesting tax exempt status for the Town of Parker are required to present evidence of exemption to specifically meet the Town of Parker requirements.

Upon receipt of the completed Application for Certificate of Tax Exemption for Charitable Organizations (PDF) and all required supplementary documentation, the Town will review your request and issue a decision. Please note: tax exemption for charitable organizations is separate from tax exemption for qualified nonprofit organizations. If you have any questions, please email the Sales Tax Division or call 303.805.3228.
