Tax Profile and Expenditure Reports

About the Reports

Every other year, the Colorado Department of Revenue prepares a Tax Profile and Expenditure Report for the state as required by §39-21-303, C.R.S. Reports are prepared in even years and published in January of odd years.

The Tax Profile and Expenditure Report includes three sections:

  • Tax Expenditure Study: Describes tax expenditures administered by the Department and estimates their revenue impacts
  • Colorado Tax Profile Study: Discusses Colorado's overall tax structure and distribution of tax burden across income groups
  • Statistics of Income Reports: Tabulate Colorado individual and corporate income tax return data by income tax year and size of income
