Colorado State Taxes and CO Income Tax
"The Centennial State"
The Colorado tax filing and tax payment deadline is April 18, 2023. If you file a tax extension you can e-File your Taxes until October 16, 2023 without a late filing penalty. However, if you owe Taxes and don't pay on time, you might face late tax payment penalties. Tip: File on time, even you can't pay on time, as the late filing penalties are higher than the late payment penalties. Estimate your penalties with our free PENALTYucator tool.
eFile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your IRS and Colorado State Tax Return (e.g resident, nonresident, or part-year resident returns). However, the IRS and the respective State Tax Agencies require you to e-file a Federal Income Tax Return at the same time you e-file a State Tax Return. This is not an eFile.com policy but an IRS and State Agency policy. Thus, technically you cannot e-File anywhere - not just eFile.com - a Colorado Tax Return without also e-filing the associated IRS Tax Return. But there is good news, please read on.
Detailed instructions on how you can only prepare and mail in - not eFile - a Colorado 2022 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the Tax Agency.
