Introduction
This Information Brochure is provided to give
new licensees a brief summary of information to
supplement the process pertaining to various
applications. If you need to apply for a change in
the status of your license, please contact the City
Clerk’s office first for the appropriate packet.
The City Clerk’s office can only accept complete
application packets, which include the
appropriate fees for both the City of Thornton and
Colorado Department of Revenue.
When are Local Licensing Authority Meetings
The Local Licensing Authority generally meets on
the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m.
in the Council Chambers on the first floor of the
City Hall. The applicant must appear before the
Authority for all applications unless they have
been approved administratively.
Filing Renewals
Approximately 90 days prior to the expiration
date, you will receive a renewal application from
the state. The one page application form (DR
8400) needs to be filed with the Thornton City
Clerk's office. The deadline for filing renewals is
45 days prior to the expiration date. The City
Clerk’s Office sends a reminder letter to
licensees of active licenses as a courtesy before
the renewal is due. Please complete the first
page of the reminder letter to reflect any changes
that have occurred and submit it with your
renewal. To avoid any processing delay, it is
recommended that the renewal be filed prior to
the 45-day deadline.
Transfer of Ownership Application
If there will be a transfer of possession or
ownership of the licensed premises by the
purchase, transfer or sale of the premises or by
operation of law, the applicant must file
application forms provided by the City Clerk.
A background investigation will be conducted,
which takes approximately 45 days to complete.
If requested by the applicant, a temporary permit
may be issued when a complete transfer of
ownership application is accepted to allow the
applicant to operate the establishment until the
Authority considers the application.
Change of Corporate/LLC Structure
If you have a change in officers, directors or
stockholders within your Corporation, or a
change of members within your Limited Liability
Company (LLC), you will need to complete a
Report of Changes Form along with other
documents as required by the State and City of
Thornton. These changes need to be reported to
the Local Licensing Authority within 30 days after
they occur.
Manager’s Registration
Hotel and Restaurant, Tavern, Beer and Wine,
Club, Arts and Racetrack establishments are
required to register a separate and distinct
manager, if this individual is not currently listed
on the license as a corporate officer or member
of a LLC. If there has been a change in
management, a new registered manager needs
to be designated within 30 days.
Modification of the Premises
If you want to make a physical change, alteration
or modification that materially or substantially
alters the licensed premises, contact the City
Clerk’s office for an application, which can only be
processed after plans have been approved by the
Building Inspection Division.
In instances where an expansion involves the
outside of the establishment, such as the addition
of a patio, it may be necessary to receive approval
for a Development Permit through the City
Development Department. If a permit is required, it
must be obtained before the Local Licensing
Authority considers the application for Modification
of the Premises.

Information Brochure - Continued
(Authority/Forms - Packet & Meeting/City Liquor Forms/Liquor & Beer Licensing Information Brochure July 2016)
Change of Location
To change the location of a license, you must
submit an application to the City Clerk first. All
applications are subject to the same procedures
and requirements as for the issuance of a new
license, except that the background investigation
regarding the applicant is not required.
Change of Trade Name or Corporate Name
To change the corporate name or trade name of
an establishment or business to which the
license is issued, the required forms need to be
submitted to the City Clerk’s office at least ten
days prior to the change.
Training Opportunities
As you are aware, it is the responsibility of the
licensee to provide training for personnel involved
in the sale and service of liquor and beer. There
are various organizations that offer formal training
that covers pertinent topics such as acceptable
identification and how to identify behavior of a
customer who may be intoxicated.
A complete list of trainers that comply with State
standards is on the State’s website:
https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/enforcement/ap
proved-responsible-vendors-training.
Some organizations that offer training include:
Training for Intervention Procedures by
Servers – TIPS – Phone: 1-800-GET-TIPS (1-
800-438-8477)
Colorado Restaurant Association (ServSafe
Alcohol), Phone: 303-830-2972.
Please contact the individual organization for more
information concerning the cost and how to
schedule a class.
In addition, the Thornton Police Department has
produced a training video which may be picked
up from the City Clerk’s office on the second floor
of City Hall. For questions contact the Thornton
Police Department Detective Division at 720-977-
5030 to speak to the Detective in charge of
Liquor Enforcement.
Amusement Device Licenses
The City of Thornton requires businesses,
including liquor/beer-licensed establishments that
have five or more amusement devices to obtain
an amusement device license. The annual fees
are $35 per machine and the term of the license
coincides with the liquor license.
Amusement Device is defined as being any
machine or device that is played for a fee which
is directly or indirectly charged, or operated with
a coin, token, slug, ticket or otherwise, and
includes the payment of a general admission
charge in order to play such devices.
An amusement device is considered to be played
for entertainment of the player or to test a skill,
such as video games, darts, pool, etc.
Amusement devices do not include such things
as bowling lanes, vending machines, juke boxes
or rides for small children. To receive an
application for an amusement device license call
303-538-7230.
Compliance Checks
The Thornton Police Department periodically
conducts law compliance checks, which is a
controlled buy, at all liquor establishments to
ensure compliance with Colorado Liquor Code
Laws and Regulations. Compliance checks are
conducted due to a concern by the City and its
Police Department about the possibility of
alcoholic beverages reaching the hands of
juveniles in the community. Compliance checks
are also an effort to identify and target juveniles
purchasing alcohol and individuals who purchase
it for juveniles. When identified, those juveniles
will be issued a summons or arrested when
appropriate.
A summons may also be issued to a server for a
liquor code violation. However, the State Liquor
Code gives the licensee of a liquor establishment
the responsibility for employees selling to
juveniles or for other violations of the Liquor
Laws or Regulations that occur on the licensed
premises. If violations are proven to have
occurred, sanctions will probably be imposed
against the Liquor License when appropriate and

Welcome to the Thornton business community!
Enclosed is the paperwork necessary to obtain a Sales and Use Tax Business License and apply for
a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) with the City of Thornton. Every business operating within the City
must obtain a CO and a Sales and Use Tax Business License regardless of the nature of the
business. The license is free and the application consists of four parts:
1. Application for Sales and Use Tax Business License This form provides general
information regarding your business. Please be certain to complete every line on the
application and allow 2 3 weeks for processing of your application. You may apply for your
business license online at www.salestaxonline.com (separate paper application for CO may be
required as outlined below). Upon approval of your Sales and Use Tax Business License
application, you will receive your business license and an informational packet regarding tax
return filing requirements in the mail. If you have questions about the business license
application process or sales/use tax questions, please contact the Sales Tax Division at 303-
538-7400.
The total sales/use tax rate within the City of Thornton is 8.5%. The City of Thornton is a home-
rule city; therefore, a separate Sales and Use Tax Business License is required for the City and
the 3.75% city tax is remitted directly to the City. The remaining 4.75% is remitted to the State
of Colorado and you may also be required to be licensed with the State of Colorado. For
questions about State licensing or reporting requirements, you may contact the Colorado
Department of Revenue at 303-238-7378.
2. Thornton Initial Use Tax Return for a New Business this form explains use tax and
provides you with the opportunity to report any use taxable purchases you may have made up
to this point. If you have no liability at this time, simply enter zero on this form. If you need
additional information regarding use tax and how to determine your liability, please call 303-
538-7400 or visit www.cityofthornton.net.
3. Certificate of Occupancy Application Upon review and approval of this application by City
planning staff, the Building Inspection Division will contact you to arrange an inspection of your
location to ensure compliance with City Building Codes and to issue a Certificate of Occupancy
(CO). You must obtain a CO prior to opening for business. A new CO is required for all
changes of ownership of existing businesses. A separate check for the $25.00 CO fee is due
when this application is submitted. If you have already obtained a City Building Permit for
construction work at your location, this CO application is not required. If you have questions
about the CO application or building inspection process, you may contact the Building Division
at 303-538-7250.
4. Commercial Occupation License Questionnaire the information provided on this form will
enable the City Development Department to determine if your intended business activity
complies with City Zoning ordinances. Please answer each question as it applies to your
business. If there is a concern regarding zoning approval, the City will contact you. If you have
questions about zoning approval, you may contact the Planning Division at 303-538-7295.
Thank you and good luck with your business!

THE CITY OF THORNTON SALES AND USE TAX ORDINANCE LEVIES A 3.75% USE TAX UPON:
a) Tangible personal property and taxable services purchased for use (i.e. items not for resale) in the operation of your business within the
corporate limits of Thornton, when no City sales tax was paid at the time of purchase; and
b) Tangible personal property and taxable services (except inventory for resale) acquired through the purchase of an "ongoing or existing
business" within the corporate limits of Thornton.
To determine if Thornton's 3.75% use tax is due, examine the Purchase Agreement and/or all invoice copies of tangible
personal property and taxable services purchased. If the Purchase Agreement and/or invoices do not include 3.75% sales
tax for the City of Thornton, as well as all Colorado State collected sales taxes, then those items should be included on the
schedule below. Some common items subject to the tax include, but not limited to: furniture, fixtures, office equipment,
machinery, software, shelving, cabinets, preprinted forms, books, factory supplies, office supplies, cleaning supplies,
brochures, and leases or rentals of any equipment. If you have questions on the taxability of specific items, contact the City
Sales Tax Division at 303-538-7400 or visit our website at www.cityofthornton.net.
Please schedule below all tangible personal property and taxable services purchased for which use tax is due. If you have purchase
documents which show that City tax has been paid attach copies and enter "none" on the "Tax Due" line. In order for this return to be
properly reviewed, please enclose copies of all invoices and/or other supporting documentation.
