DOES COLORADO HAVE ESTATE TAX?

Colorado does not have its own separate estate tax. However, it's important to note that estate tax laws can change, and states have the authority to implement their own estate taxes. In the past, Colorado initially had an inheritance tax, but it was replaced by an estate tax in 1980. Until 2005, a federal tax credit known as the "state death tax credit" was allowed, and Colorado's estate tax matched this credit. Federal changes eliminated this credit in 2005, effectively ending Colorado's estate tax for deaths after December 31, 2004. However, if the date of death falls before that date, Form DR 1210 must be filed. Additional filing details can be found on the Colorado Department of Revenue website.

Since tax laws can change over time, it's crucial to consult with a qualified estate planning attorney and gift tax attorney in Monument to get the most up-to-date information on estate taxes in the state and to understand how they may impact your estate planning.

WHO PAYS THE GIFT TAX?

The federal gift tax is generally paid by the donor (the person making the gift). If you make gifts during your lifetime that exceed the annual exclusion limit or the lifetime gift tax exemption, you may be required to file a federal gift tax return, but you would generally only owe gift tax if your total lifetime gifts exceed the exemption limit.
