I am a Colorado resident and want to receive the tabor sales tax refund with this return. I need to enter 800. on line 34. Please assist.

To establish your eligibility for the Colorado sales tax refund (TABOR) in TurboTax Online, follow the instructions below. Take special note of step 6.  The question asks whether you were incarcerated in Colorado for 180 days or more in 2023.  

  1. Open TurboTax Online
  2. Select  Tax Home in the left pane
  3. On the  Hi, let's keep working on your taxes! screen, select the dropdown on the right side of the State Taxes box, then select StartContinue, Review/Edit, or Pick up where you left off
  4. Proceed through the state screens.  (If you come to the Your 2023 Colorado taxes are ready for us to check screen, select Edit to the right of Credits and taxes)
  5. Select  Done with credits and taxes on the Take a look at Colorado credits and taxes pageand continue the state interview
  6. On the  Qualifying for the Colorado state sales tax refund page, select No if you haven't been incarcerated in Colorado for 180 days or more during the tax year.      A lot of people seem to not read this screen and answer incorrectly
  7. If appropriate, select Yes on the Qualifying for the Colorado sales tax refund screen. 
  8. If you qualify, the You're getting the Colorado sales tax refund! screen should generate.  Select Continue
  9. Continue through the state questions

Note:  If you don't come to the screen in step 5 above while reviewing your return, select Start or Revisit next to Sales Tax Refund when you come to the A few things before we wrap up your state taxes screen.

 

See 2023 TABOR Refund in the Colorado Department of Revenue's Taxpayer's Bill of Rights (TABOR) Information to view the sales tax refund requirements.
