Tax Facts

 
• On a per capita basis, Colorado state government taxes were 20% below the national rate.  However, Colorado's local taxes were 13% higher.

Nationally, on average, over 60% of the state and local taxes were collected at the state level.

Latest Census Bureau information shows that Colorado remains one of the most fiscally decentralized states in the nation.

Colorado's total state and local tax burden per capita was 7% below the national average in 1996 and 9% below when taxes were related to income.
 

The Center for Tax Policy (CTP) is a privately sponsored, non-profit taxpayer organization that gathers and disseminates information to guide business and government decision-makers in the formation of public tax policy.

CTP is, in effect, a non-partisan "watchdog" of taxpayer interests dedicated to the promotion of better state and local government through research and education.
