Multiple Methods For Receipt Of Income Tax Refunds
Concerning the opportunity for a taxpayer to specify multiple methods by which to receive an income tax refund, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
2016 Regular Session
Fiscal Policy & Taxes
Currently, a taxpayer may opt to receive his or her income tax refund in the form of a check, or may elect to have his or her income tax refund directly deposited into one of the following: A savings account, a checking account, or a college savings account administered by collegeinvest, a division of the Colorado department of higher education. The bill requires the department of revenue to provide a taxpayer the opportunity to apportion his or her income tax refund among up to 4 such methods; except that collegeinvest savings account refund deposits must be at least $25, and also the department of revenue retains the right to issue refunds in a manner it deems the most administratively efficient.
