The Department of Revenue is processing 2023 income tax returns. For more information, please read the Department's announcement.


DR 1059 - Exemption from Withholding for a Qualifying Spouse of a U.S. Armed Forces Service Member


The nonresident spouse of a servicemember may provide a completed copy of this affidavit, along with a copy of his or her dependent ID card issued by the applicable branch of the uniformed services, to the nonresident spouse’s employer to attest to his or her eligibility for exemption from Colorado wage withholding. An employer who has received a properly completed affidavit from an employee is relieved of the obligation to withhold Colorado income tax from the employee’s pay. The employer should not submit the affidavit to the Department of Revenue, but rather the employer must retain the affidavit in their records and provide a copy of it to the Department only upon request.
