Legislative changes to the Enterprise Zone Program became effective in 2012 that now require Pre-certification be obtained ANNUALLY for activities that will earn business tax credits. Additionally, Pre-certification must be completed prior to beginning an activity to earn any of the business tax credits. Electronic Pre-certification is easy and will ensure that your business can utilize the tax credits.
To Pre-certify, please visit Colorado's Office of Economic Development and International Trade Enterprise Zone page and simply click on the "Apply" button. An e-mail acknowledging receipt of the Pre-certification will be sent back to the tax preparer listed and an additional e-mail will be sent either approving or denying that Pre-certification. Please retain that approval e-mail in your records as it will be needed to receive Certification for credits.
