The methodology for some estimates and income class categories changed from 2014 due to changes in the Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditure Survey (CES), therefore estimates from prior years may not be comparable. 1 Estimate of income uses the CES definition of “money income” which includes all sources of income, taxable and nontaxable, as well as transfer payments (such as public assistance, supplemental security income, food stamps, and other benefits or contributions). 2 Calendar year 2015 estimates were updated to include data from taxpayers who filed for an extension on their federal taxes. 3 Some taxpayers family money income estimate was negative. Negative income is associated with self-employment and investment losses. These taxpayers were excluded because we cannot reliably assign them to the income categories used in this table. 4 Estimate is based on values from state and Federal income tax returns. 5 Estimate is calculated using the CES proportion of income for the tax on that item for each class, multiplied by the Colorado average income value for each class. 6 Industry data (e.g., average prices) was used to estimate the tax paid based on the CES value for that item. Then, the estimate was calculated using the CES proportion of income for the tax on that item for each class, multiplied by the Colorado average income value for each class. 7 The total state collections for drivers licenses was divided by the total number of filers, yielding a flat fee across all income classes. 8 The registrations and specific ownership fees/taxes paid were estimated using the total state collections and the CES average number of vehicles for each income class. 9 Total local occupation fees collected were distributed by income class. 10 Medicare and Social Security taxes were estimated based on income subject to these taxes. 11 Employers pay taxes to Medicare and Social Security on the employees’ behalf.

Please read through this guide before starting your return. Once you finish the form, file it with a computer, smartphone or tablet using our free and secure Revenue Online service at Colorado.gov/RevenueOnline. You may also file using private e-File software or with a paid tax preparer. You significantly reduce the chance of errors by filing your return electronically. If you cannot file electronically for any reason, mail the enclosed forms as instructed. All Colorado forms and publications referenced in this guide are available for download at Colorado.gov/Tax, the official Taxation website. The following symbols appear throughout this guide and point out important information, reminders and changes to tax rules. This points out a topic that is the source of common filing errors. Filing your return on Revenue Online will reduce the risk of errors; however, it is important to understand the information on your return. Errors cause processing delays and erroneous bills. Several subtractions and tax credits require you to provide supporting documentation. This symbol points out those requirements. If the additional documentation is not provided, it will cause processing delays or denial of the credits/ subtractions. These documents can be scanned and attached to your electronic filing through Revenue Online or most tax software, mailed with the DR 1778 or attached to your paper return. In-depth tax information is available in our easy to understand FYI Publications, which include examples and worksheets. This symbol lets you know when such a publication is available for a subject. All FYI publications are available in the Education and Legal Research section at Colorado.gov/Tax. Filing Information Who Must File This Tax Return Each year you must evaluate if you should file a Colorado income tax return. Generally, you must file this return if you are required to file a federal income tax return with the IRS for this year or will have a Colorado income tax liability for this year and you are: • A full-year resident of Colorado, or • A part-year Colorado resident who received taxable income while residing here or • Not a resident of Colorado, but received income from sources within Colorado. Colorado residents must file this return if they are required to file an income tax return with the IRS, even if they do not have a Colorado tax liability. Otherwise, the Department may file a return on your behalf and our return might not consider your unique tax situation. Also, the only way to determine if you are entitled to a refund is to file a return. Due Date The DR 0104 and any tax payment owed are due April 15, 2019. Revenue Online will accept returns as timely filed until midnight. Returns that are mailed must be Page 3 postmarked by April 15. An automatic extension to file is granted until October 15, but there is no extension to pay. See page 27 for more information. Deceased Persons Legal representatives and surviving spouses may file a return on behalf of a deceased person whose date of death was during the tax year. Surviving spouses may complete the return as usual and indicate the deceased status on the return. They can file the return and submit a copy of the death certificate through Revenue Online. Legal representatives may file the return and submit a copy of the death certificate through Revenue Online, but they must complete the Third Party Designee portion of the return. Either a surviving spouse or legal representative can avoid problems when filing on paper by marking the box next to the name of the deceased person, writing “DECEASED” in large letters in the white space above the tax year of the return, writing “FILING AS SURVIVING SPOUSE” or “FILING AS LEGAL REPRESENTATIVE” after their signature, and attaching the DR 0102 and a copy of the death certificate to the return. To claim a refund on behalf of a deceased person: you must submit a copy of the death certificate with the DR 0102 when filing the return. Filing Status You must file using the same filing status on both your federal and Colorado income tax returns. Any two individuals who legally file a joint federal income tax return must also file their Colorado income tax return jointly. Individuals filing a joint return must list the taxpayer names and Social Security numbers (SSN) in the same order on both the federal and Colorado returns. For married filing separate, do not list your spouse’s name or SSN on the return. Claiming Credits from a Pass-through Entity Individuals claiming tax credits as a partner or shareholder must obtain from the partnership or S corporation a federal Schedule K-1 or other statement reporting the name and employer identification number (EIN) of the partnership or S corporation and the type and amount of the credit. The Colorado Department of Revenue verifies the credit claims of partners and shareholders by reviewing the partnership or S corporation’s return. The Schedule K-1s or statements may be submitted through Revenue Online, through tax software or may be attached to a paper return. Line–by–Line Instructions for the DR 0104 First, complete the federal income tax return you will file with the IRS because you will use information from that return on your Colorado income tax return. Colorado income tax is based on your federal taxable income, which has already considered your deductions. Residency Status Mark the appropriate box to designate your residency status. If you are filing a joint return, and one person is a full-year Colorado resident and the other is either a part-year resident or a nonresident, mark the Part-Year Resident/Nonresident box. Page 4 Part-Year Colorado Residents and Nonresidents Tax is prorated so that it is calculated only on income received in Colorado or from sources within Colorado. We recommend you review publication FYI Income 6 if this applies to you. You will calculate your prorated tax by completing the DR 0104PN. You must submit the DR 0104PN with your return. Persons Traveling or Residing Abroad If you are traveling or residing outside the United States on April 15, the deadline for filing your return is June 17, 2019. If you need additional time to file your return, you will automatically have until October 15, 2019, to file. Interest is due on any tax paid after April 15, 2019. To avoid any late payment penalties, you must pay 90% of your tax liability by June 17, 2019, file your return by October 15, 2019 and pay any remaining tax due at the time of filing. When filing your return, mark the “Abroad on Due Date” box on Revenue Online or the paper return. Active Duty Military Under federal law, a military servicemember’s state of legal residence does not change solely as the result of the servicemember’s assignment for service in another state. Consequently, a Colorado resident who enters into military service will remain a Colorado resident unless they officially change their state of legal residence as described in DD Form 2058. In general, military servicemembers who are Colorado residents are subject to the same income tax filing requirements as other Colorado residents, even if they are serving in another state. These requirements are described on the preceding page, under the heading “Who Must File This Tax Return.” However, any military servicemember who spends at least 305 days of the tax year stationed outside of the United States on active military duty may elect to be treated as a nonresident. The servicemember may make this election by filing a return and checking the applicable box on Form 104PN. Military servicemembers who are stationed in Colorado, but are not Colorado residents, are not required to pay Colorado tax on their military income. However, any other Colorado source income of a nonresident servicemember is subject to Colorado taxation. Please see “Military Service Members — Special Filing Information” webpage on our website for additional information. The residency rules described above for military servicemembers also apply generally to a servicemember’s spouse if the spouse is residing with the servicemember either inside or outside of Colorado in compliance with the servicemember’s military orders. If a servicemember and their spouse are nonresidents stationed in Colorado, any wages earned by the spouse for work performed in Colorado are not subject to Colorado taxation. The military spouse must complete a DR 1059, provide a copy to their employer when hired for employment, and submit a copy to the Department, along with a copy of their military ID card, when they file their Colorado return each year. The DR 1059 may be filed with the Department through Revenue Online, with DR 1778, or as an attachment to a DR 0104 filed by paper. Name and Address Provide your name, mailing address, date of birth, Social Security number, as well as the state of issue, last four digits, and the date of issuance of your state issued ID card in the provided spaces. If filing Married Filing Joint, provide the spouse’s information where prompted. Provide the spouse’s information ONLY if filing a joint return. Otherwise leave blank. All Departmental correspondence will be mailed to the mailing address provided. We recommend you read publication FYI General 2 for the Privacy Act Notice. Line 1 Federal Taxable Income Refer to your federal income tax return to complete this line: • Form 1040 line 10 If your federal taxable income is a negative amount, be sure to enter the amount as such on your Colorado return. If submitting a paper return, put the negative amount in parentheses, for example ($1,234). Do not enter your total income or wages on this line because it will make your tax too high. The Department will compare the amount you list here to the return you file with the IRS, so be very careful to complete this correctly. Additions Line 2 State Addback Refer to your federal income tax return to complete this line. Enter $0 if you filed Form 1040 but did not itemize your deductions on Schedule A. Taxpayers who deduct general sales taxes on Schedule A line 5a, Form 1040, are not required to calculate this addback. If you deducted state income tax on Schedule A line 5a, complete the worksheet below to calculate the Income Tax Deduction. We recommend that you read publication FYI Income 4 for special instructions before completing the worksheet below. Complete the following worksheet to determine your state income tax deduction addback. a) Is the amount on federal Form 1040 Schedule A line 5d greater than the amount on federal Form 1040 Schedule A line 5e? No. Enter the state income tax deduction from federal Form 1040 Schedule A line 5a. Yes. Subtract the amounts on federal Form 1040 Schedule A lines 5b and 5c from the amount on line 5e.

We recommend that you read publication FYI Income 52 if this applies to you. • Improper distributions from a qualified state tuition program for which tuition program contribution subtraction was previously claimed. See FYI Income 44 for additional information. • Dependent child income—the amount from IRS Form 8814 line 14 or $1,050, whichever is smaller.

You have the option of authorizing the Department to directly deposit these funds to your bank or CollegeInvest account. Otherwise, a refund check will be mailed to the address you have designated on this return. • Direct Deposit—Enter the routing and account numbers and account type. The routing number is 9 digits. Account numbers can be up to 17 characters (numbers and/or letters). Include hyphens, but do NOT enter spaces or special symbols. We recommend that you contact your financial institution to ensure you are using the correct information and that they will honor a direct deposit. See the sample check below to assist you in finding the account and routing numbers.

If you are filing a joint return and only one party is responsible for the unpaid debt, you may file a written claim to: Injured Spouse Desk, 1375 Sherman Street, Room 240, Denver, CO 80261. Claims must include a copy of your federal income tax return, federal form 8379 and copies of all W-2, W-2G, or any 1099 statements received by both parties. DO NOT attach your claim to this return. It will not be processed. Line 31 Net Tax Due Subtract line 24 from line 15, then add line 28. This is the amount you owe with this return. If you are filing after the due date (or valid extension) or you owe estimated tax penalty, continue to the next line. If you are filing timely and do not owe penalty or interest, go to line 35. Line 32 Delinquent Payment Penalty Calculate any penalty owed for delinquent filing or payment. The penalty is the greater of $5 or 5% of the net tax due for the first month after the due date and increased by 0.5% for each additional month past the due date. The maximum penalty is 12%. If you prefer not to calculate this penalty, the Department will bill you. Line 33 Delinquent Payment Interest Page 7 Calculate any interest owed for delinquent filing or payment. The interest rate is 5% of the net tax due. If you prefer not to calculate this interest, the Department will bill you. Interest on any bill issued that remains unpaid after 30 days of issuance will increase to 8%. Line 34 Estimated Tax Penalty To calculate this penalty, complete the form DR 0204. Enter any estimated tax penalty owed on this line. You must submit the DR 0204 with your return.

Form 104 is a Colorado Individual Income Tax form. Like the Federal Form 1040, states each provide a core tax return form on which most high-level income and tax calculations are performed. While some taxpayers with simple returns can complete their entire tax return on this single form, in most cases various other additional schedules and forms must be completed, depending on the taxpayer's individual situation, to create a complete income tax return package.

About the Individual Income Tax

The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.

Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!

Historical Past-Year Versions of Colorado Form 104

We have a total of eight past-year versions of Form 104 in the TaxFormFinder archives, including for the previous tax year. Download past year versions of this tax form as PDFs here:
