State
Colorado offers businesses the choice to calculate their state tax liability on the basis of the standard three-factor formula (revenue, property, and payroll), or a two-factor formula (revenue and property), whichever is less. Only domestic operations and income are included in the apportionment formulas. Colorado is a water's edge unitary tax state.

Personal Income Tax
In 1987, the Colorado Legislature adopted a flat tax structure that greatly simplifies the determination of Colorado income tax liability.

Unemployement Insurance Tax
State unemployment insurance rates vary among established employers, depending upon the history of taxes and benefits paid, and the Unemployment Insurance Fund balance. The tax rate is a combination of three separate factors including the base rate, an annually computed surtax, and a solvency tax surcharge. Employers in construction related businesses may be subject to a different tax base rate.
