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


DR 1079 - Payment of Withholding Tax on Certain Colorado Real Property Interest Transfers


Use the DR 1079 to remit Colorado tax withheld on transfers of real property interests. The determination of the amount to be withheld, if any, will be made on the DR 1083.

The amount of the withholding tax remitted will be credited to the Colorado income tax account of the transferor, similar to wage withholding. The transferor must claim credit for the payment on the Colorado income tax return. For this reason it is extremely important that a separate DR 1079 is completed for each transferor who will be required to file a Colorado income tax return, and that the correct Social Security number or ITIN (for individuals) or Colorado Account Number or FEIN (for other business entities) is listed on each form.
