Bill Summary

The act creates a one-time TABOR refund mechanism for excess state revenues for the 2022-23 state fiscal year that are required to be refunded in the 2023-24 state fiscal year. The TABOR refund mechanism allows for an increase in the earned income tax credit that a resident individual, including a resident individual who does not have a social security number valid for employment, may claim on the resident individual's state income tax return from 25% to 50% of the federal credit claimed on the resident individual's federal income tax return or the federal credit that the resident individual would have been allowed but for the fact that the resident individual does not have a social security number that is valid for employment.

For the 2023-24 state fiscal year, $51,483 is appropriated from the general fund to the department of revenue and $516 of that amount is reappropriated to the department of personnel for implementation of the act.
