At a time when the State of Colorado is looking to increase taxes to satisfy the appetites of politicians they may want to pause because an audit in June 2017 found that more than two million dollars in cash payments to film productions companies that did not qualify for incentives was spent without justification, and more than a few taxpayers are more than just upset.

A Voice of Colorado Version 2018 No. 215

Come November 2018 voters in the State of Colorado could be asked to increase their taxes by more than one billion dollars. The money would supposedly be dedicated to public education.

Supporters of the measure, identified as Great Schools, Thriving Communities, say that increasing the tax rate on corporations and income for those making more than $150,000 per year as well as changing how residential property is taxed for school funding is the plan.

Presently the Colorado Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, or T.A.B.O.R. requires that voters approve a tax increase, which could provide funding for public education. To date voters have twice rejected such proposals, most recently in 2013.

To get the measure on the ballot supporters of the billion-dollar plus increase need to gather 98,492 valid signatures. In 2016 Amendment 71 was passed, requiring that such signatures be gathered in every state Senate district.

If passed the measure would require increasing the corporate tax rate in the State of Colorado from 4.63 percent to 6 percent; increasing the income tax rate from a flat 4.63 percent to between 5 and 8.25 percent for individuals earning more than $150,000; setting the residential property assessment rate at 7 percent for public schools, and the non-residential property assessment rate to 24 percent.

Supporters of the measure claim that an individual earning more than $150,000 a year would pay an additional $519 per year; the average corporate taxpayer would pay an additional $11,085 per year; and the change in property taxes would increase by an average of $28 per year on each $100,00 of actual value.

Should the measure pass it is projected that the tax increase would generate an estimated $1.6 billion that would allegedly be set aside into a “Quality Public Education Fund”, and would be distributed in accordance with a new school finance formula.
