Please remember that you must claim the state sales tax refund (TABOR refund) when filing your state income tax return. If you claimed a 2023 refund, the TABOR refund will be combined and issued out with your refund. Unlike the 2022 Colorado cashback, no separate check will be issued. 


Molybdenum Ore Severance Tax


The rate of the tax for each calendar quarter shall be five cents per ton of molybdenum ore. On and after July 1, 1999, no tax provided for in this section shall be imposed on the first 625,000 tons of molybdenum ore produced each quarter of the taxable year.

Every individual, corporation, business trust, partner in a partnership, association, estate, trust or any other legal entity liable for the payment of Colorado molybdenum severance tax must file a Colorado Molybdenum Ore Severance Tax Return (DR 0022). This return shall be reported on a quarterly basis and is due on or before the 15th day following the end of each quarter. If the severance tax liability for the current tax year can reasonably be expected to exceed its Colorado severance tax credits by $5,000 or more, estimated severance tax payments are due with the quarterly Colorado Molybdenum Ore Severance Tax Return (DR 0022).
