HB21- 1002 Reductions Certain Taxpayers' Income Tax

This bill restores, over time, certain federal tax deductions that were disallowed in Colorado by House Bill 20-1420. Specific dedications are related to net operating losses, the application of the federal excess business loss rules, interest expenses and qualified improvement property.

This legislation restores some of the much needed tax relief for Colorado employers that was passed in the CARES Act.
