Many checks have already reached mailboxes, but if you got an extension on your tax return until Oct. 17, 2022, the Colorado Department of Revenue Taxation Division said you should receive your cash back check by Jan. 31, 2023.

The Colorado Cash Back program is a refund of state revenues collected above the Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) limit. This refund will be paid back based on the tax return or property tax, rent or heat credit rebate application (PTC Rebate) filed for 2021.

“Many Colorado families are still feeling the economic impacts of the pandemic, combined with the rising cost of living in the state,” Sarah Barnes, director of family economic prosperity initiatives for Colorado Children’s Campaign, said to Forbes. Barnes noted that direct payments are one of the most impactful ways to help support Colorado families.

The Colorado Department of Revenue explained that, to receive a cash back check, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have been at least 18 years of age on or before Dec. 31, 2021.
  • Had been a Colorado resident for the entire 2021 income tax year.
  • Filed a 2021 state income tax return or applied for a property tax / rent / heat credit (PTC) rebate that year.

The first round of checks went to residents who filed their taxes before June 30, 2022. These payments were made by Sept. 30, 2022. The second round of payments will be issued by Jan. 31.
