Tax Incentive Workshops

B&O Tax Incentive Open House workshops

Would you like to see your Business and Occupation (B&O) taxes stay in Colfax where they can directly benefit our own community? Attending an upcoming workshop sponsored by the Colfax Downtown Association can show you how. The first workshop is set for Wednesday, January 16 at three convenient times, 7-9 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 4-7 p.m. at The Center at Colfax Library. This is an open house format so business owners can stop in any time during the posted hours.

Because Colfax Downtown Association is part of the Main Street program, Colfax businesses are eligible for a tax credit worth 75% of the contribution for your 2020 taxes. Application is made to the Department of Revenue and once approved, the business owners select Colfax Downtown Association for their donation.

Pledges are being accepted from January 16 to March 31, 2019 and participants have until November of 2019 to pay their pledge and receive the tax credit for 2020. Businesses can also receive a charitable giving tax deduction in 2019 because the Downtown Association is a 501c3 organization.

Additional workshops are being held on Tuesday, February 12 and Wednesday, March 20 at those same times, 7-9a.m., 11:30-1:30 p.m. and 4-7 p.m. at The Center.
