Quarterly reports

Q1. Who has to file a quarterly report?

A1. Every bingo-raffle licensee in Colorado must file a quarterly financial report, even if no games of chance were conducted and no administrative fee is due.

Q2. Do I have to file a report if no activity occurred that quarter?

A2. Yes.  If you are e-filing, select "No activity".

If you are filing on paper, file a "zero" or "no activity" report by entering zeros in all applicable fields.

You must also submit a Schedule A distribution of proceeds.

Q3. Do I have to submit any additional information with my report?

A3. In addition to the quarterly report, you must submit the following forms:

  • LE-21a Addendum (bank form). If you are e-filing, you will be asked for this information during the online filing process - you don't need to upload it separately
  • Schedule A distribution of proceeds
  • If playing progressive games, you must also submit the applicable form:
    • LE-31a Progressive pull tab summary
    • LE-34a Progressive jackpot bingo summary
    • LE-34c Progressive raffle summary

Q4. How do I file my quarterly report online?

A4. To file a quarterly report online, log in to your account, and then click on "Quarterly reports".    How do I create an account?

Q5. How do I submit additional forms online?

A5. If you are filing online, then your additional forms must be uploaded as PDFs with your quarterly report.

Q6. Can I file my report online and mail in any additional forms or documentation needed?

A6. No. When you e-file your quarterly report, you must upload additional forms in PDF format.

Q7. How do I enter information for bingo, raffle, and pull tabs online?

A7. When you e-file a quarterly report, you will be asked to mark boxes to show which games are being played. Based on your selections, you will later be asked to enter information for those games.

If you need to enter raffle information, for example, but no raffle section appears in the online report, then you did not mark the "Raffles" box at the beginning of the process.

To add or remove games after you have started a filing, first click on "Save" at the bottom of the screen so that you don't lose any information that you have already entered. Then click on "Change" at the top of the page, next to "Games this quarter", to add or remove games.

Q8. How do I pay for my report?

A8. If you are e-filing your report, you must pay your fee (if any) online when you submit the form.

If you are filing on paper, include a check or money order when you submit your form.

For a raffle that runs over time, with several drawing dates included on one ticket (calendar raffle), enter the final drawing date.

Q12. How do I get a refund?
