Taxpayers who filed 2006 Colorado income tax returns, had a balance due on their return and did not submit a payment are receiving a balance due notice in the mail. In all cases where there is a delay in payment, penalty and interest will be charged on the amount due. When the balance due notice is received, taxpayers have the option of paying the full balance due or setting up an installment plan.If the taxpayer wishes to pay the full balance due, payment must be made by the due date printed on the balance due notice to avoid further late fees. Payment must be attached to the notice and mailed to: Colorado Department of Revenue, 1375 Sherman St., Denver, CO 80261-0004.If the taxpayer is unable to pay the balance due in full, the taxpayer can apply for an Agreement to Pay (ATP). Additional penalty will not be assessed after the installment plan is set up, but interest will be added.If taxpayers disagree with the balance due notice, they may protest the amount due. To protest the notice, send a letter to the executive director for a hearing to present the facts and arguments. This written application must be filed within 30 days from the date of the notice.For information on protest procedures, visit; or for more information, contact the tax information line at (303) 238-7378.
