Each row in this dataset represents a client's unique application for the food tax rebate program from 2015 to 2018.

Each year, the City of Boulder provides rebates to help compensate residents with lower incomes for the city sales tax they pay on food.

To be eligible to receive a refund, applicants must meet financial eligibility guidelines, have been a resident of Boulder for the entire prior year, and be:

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