Tax Refund Windfall: Colorado Families Eligible for Up to $1,694 in 2024

397

Certain residents of Colorado can anticipate an augmented tax refund in the year 2024, courtesy of an amendment to the state’s Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR).

Traditionally, the distribution of TABOR refunds has been contingent on income levels. However, the elected officials of Colorado have made the decision to standardize the disbursement, resulting in higher-earning residents receiving a diminished amount compared to the customary refunds. 

Conversely, individuals with lower incomes can envisage an additional sum, potentially amounting to a few hundred dollars.

Expected TABOR Rebates for the Coming Year: $3.28 Billion Allocated to Taxpayers

Certain residents of Colorado can anticipate an augmented tax refund in the year 2024, courtesy of an amendment to the state’s Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR).

Presently, individual taxpayers are projected to receive a sum of $847, while those filing jointly are slated to obtain $1,694 in Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) refunds in the coming year. 

This initiative is anticipated to allocate around $3.28 billion back to the taxpayers.

The legislative body opted for uniform TABOR disbursements subsequent to the rejection by Colorado voters of Proposition HH. 

The proposition sought to elevate the state’s revenue cap, allocate a property tax reduction, and provide taxpayers with a one-time, equitably distributed refund under TABOR. 

However, it was also perceived that this proposition might have resulted in the potential elimination of future tax refunds.

Additionally, lawmakers sanctioned a measure to enhance Colorado’s earned income tax credit, a move that is expected to reduce the TABOR refunds to an approximate amount of $800.

Current TABOR Refund Changes: Reductions for Incomes Above $104,001

Prior to the modification, individuals with incomes up to $51,000 were expected to receive around $586, and those with earnings ranging from $51,001 to $104,000 were projected to receive approximately $769.

Presently, individuals with incomes surpassing $104,001 will experience a reduction in their Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) refunds. 

This reduction is stipulated by the legislation, with the decrease varying from just under $100 to approximately $1,000 for the highest earners within this income bracket. 

The sole beneficiaries of augmented TABOR funds are individuals earning up to $51,000 or falling within the income range of $51,001 to $104,000.
