Budget & Taxes


Each year state decision-makers are tasked with balancing constitutional, statutory, and federal requirements with a host of other considerations, such as competing policy priorities, caseload growth, and the health of the state’s economy to create a budget.  Although the budget is funded with a variety of revenue sources, state taxes provide a significant portion of the revenue Colorado uses to fund its operations.

Popular publications related to the state budget and tax policy include:

The effective date for bills enacted without a safety clause is August 7, 2024, if the General Assembly adjourns sine die on May 8, 2024, unless otherwise specified. Details
