4.28.2014 Another Step in BPPT Relief; Stage Set for More Reform

Business Personal Property Tax (BPPT) is arguably the most onerous tax on business.  A continual tax on investment in business capital, it dissuades significant capital investment and puts Colorado at a disadvantage in attracting, retaining and growing capital intensive business and industries, including advanced manufacturing, technology, agriculture among others.  NCLA continues to lead the discussion and the solutions on BPPT.  This week, two bills passed the legislature and set the stage for more comprehensive reform next year.
