DENVER — Refunds from the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, commonly known as TABOR, will start arriving in the mail this month.
The refunds are mandated by a Colorado constitutional amendment that limits how much the state can keep and spend each year.
"Colorado Cashback checks are already in the mail system," said Governor Polis.
The direct checks are part of the TABOR refunds that Colorado residents would normally get when they file their taxes next year.
Lawmakers passed a bill this year, that Polis signed, issuing direct payments of $750 for single filers and $1,500 for joint filers ahead of November's election.
"The legislature took action to accelerate this refund mechanism This is money that people would have gotten back next year. We moved it up about a year. Nine or 10 months. Why? Because you need it now," said Polis.
