In 2015, Greeley voters extended the 3.46 percent tax on food with a rebate program for low-income households. Beginning Feb. 1, the food tax rebate application process opens for the 2019 tax year.

Proof of residency is required; examples include rent receipts or copies of home utility bills. Copies of the statements must show dates and the name and address of the person applying for the food tax rebate. Qualified family members are legal dependents claimed on federal form 1040. Applicants must provide a Social Security number for each family member requested on their application. The maximum rebate is $65 per person in the household. Applications must be received by May 31, 2020.
