That is correct, in your case, you do NOT have to pay tax on your CO refund.

The reason you pay tax on any state refund is IF you itemize, you can write off those state taxes that are withheld from your paycheck.

If you don't itemize, then you don't deduct those taxes, so you don't have to report them.
