City of Boulder Announces Food Tax Rebate Applications Available March 1, 2022. 
Each year, the City of Boulder provides rebates to help community members with lower incomes pay for food. Boulder has operated the Food Tax Rebate program since 1967 to help lessen the financial burden on lower income residents for city sales tax paid on food items. The program aims to expand financial support to help enhance economic stability in our community.

Rebates will be $92 for individuals and $280 for families. To be eligible, applicants must complete an application and meet financial eligibility guidelines, have been a resident of Boulder for the entire 2021 calendar year, and be:

  • age 62 or over for the entire 2021 calendar year; or
  • a person with a disability; or
  • a family with children under 18 years of age in the household for the entire 2021 calendar year.

City residents who do not have permanent shelter are eligible for the refund and can meet the residency requirement by providing documentation that they are receiving services from a city-recognized homelessness services agency.
