DMV: Colorado's 150th-Anniversary License Plate Breaks Sales Records

The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) proudly announces that one of the state's 150th-anniversary license plates has set an unprecedented record as the fastest-selling plate in state history. 

In a tribute to Colorado's history and spirit, residents have rushed to display the "Pikes Peak or Bust" plate on their vehicles, with 5,700 license plates ordered in the first two months of availability, surpassing the previous fastest seller, the Broncos Charities plate, which took four months to reach comparable sales. 

“Colorado’s 150th birthday is an exciting time to celebrate and take pride in our state. Both of the 150th-anniversary license plate designs showcase unique parts of Colorado, so I am not surprised many people chose one for their vehicles,” Governor Jared Polis said. “Congratulations to Calista and Evan on the success of your license plate designs, and I look forward to seeing more of them on the roads!”

TAX: IRS Guidance on TABOR and what it means to you

On Aug. 30, 2023, the IRS announced guidance(opens in new window) on the federal tax status of refunds of state or local taxes and certain other payments made by state or local governments to individuals. In Colorado, this new guidance from the IRS affects TABOR refunds.

Once the Department understands the extent of the guidance, we will develop materials to help inform, educate and answer Coloradans questions before the next income-tax filing season.

We also suggest Coloradans review the IRS guidance with their tax advisors. The impact on each individual Coloradan may vary, and the Department of Revenue cannot provide individualized federal tax advice
