No Income Tax Mailing!

I just received this notice from the Colorado Department of Revenue, thought I would share.

Reminder – No automatic mailing of income tax booklets

Due to the increase in electronic filings each year and to reduce mailing and printing costs, the Colorado Department of Revenue has discontinued the annual automatic mailing of income tax booklets to taxpayers. In recent years, the department mailed booklets only to those taxpayers who have not made the switch to electronic filing. Booklets would arrive by mail the week between the Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays.

Printed income booklets and forms are provided to participating libraries throughout the state. Booklets will also be available at all state tax district offices as well as all Colorado driver’s license offices.
