(May 21) – Gov. John Hickenlooper traveled to Golden today to hold a bill signing ceremony for Rep. Jessie Danielson’s bill to give a tax break to thousands of military veterans in Colorado.
HB18-1060 phases in a Colorado tax deduction of up to $10,000 for veterans under the age of 55 whose military retirement benefits are less than $40,000 a year.
“This tax break for military retirees honors veterans’ service and goes a long way toward making Colorado the most veteran-friendly state in the country,” Rep. Danielson said.
The event took place at the Jefferson County Government Center in Golden, in Rep. Danielson’s district.
