Door to Door Sales & Flyers

There is no law that prohibits salesmen from going door to door in the City of Arvada. We do require anyone involved in a retail sales business to register with the sales tax office and pay sales tax to the City for the goods they sell. Laws that attempt to restrict sales door to door are difficult to enforce; by the time an officer arrives in response to a phone call the sales person is usually gone and difficult to locate. There have been a few occasions where a group of young solicitors are dropped off in a neighborhood claiming they are earning funds for their "future" but beyond the annoyance factor, their activity is not criminal or illegal. Laws prohibiting door to door sales have an impact on everything from the vacuum cleaner salesman to the scouts or local students selling products to support their activities.
