DENVER (KKTV) - Colorado Gov. Jared Polis provided an update on “Colorado Cash Back” on Tuesday.

You can watch a replay from the 11 Breaking News Center at the top of this article.

Starting this week, the first round of physical checks were mailed out to Colorado taxpayers thanks to TABOR. The governor said most people should receive their check by next week.

Anyone in Colorado who filed a tax return is expected to get $750 back from the state, or $1,500 for joint filers. The early TABOR refund was signed into law by Polis back in May. Residents should know the money will come in the mailbox and not via direct deposit to combat fraud attempts. You had to file your state tax returns by June 30. Checks are expected to start going out on Monday and most everyone who qualified should expect to get their TABOR refund by the end of September.

Extended filers who have a deadline of Oct. 17, 2022, will receive the refund by Jan. 31, 2023.

If you need to change the address you listed on your state tax return, you can change your mailing address in two ways: If you have a Revenue Online account, you can do so online. If not, you may change your address by filling out and returning the Address Change Form (DR 1102).
