Wildfire Matters Review Committee. Section 1 of the bill
establishes the wildfire mitigation resources and best practices grant
program (grant program) within the Colorado state forest service (forest
service). To be eligible to receive a grant, a recipient must be an agency
of local government, a county, municipality, special district, a tribal
agency or program, or a nonprofit organization.
The forest service is tasked with reviewing grant applications.
Grants must be awarded to applicants proposing to conduct outreach

among landowners in high wildfire hazard areas and the forest service
must consider the potential impact of the applicants' proposed outreach
when awarding grants.
The forest service must report to the wildfire matters review
committee on the grant program.
Section 2 repeals the existing income tax deduction created to
offset the landowner's costs incurred in performing wildfire mitigation
measures for the 2023 and subsequent income tax years.
Section 3 creates a state income tax credit to reimburse a
landowner for the costs incurred in performing wildfire mitigation
measures on the landowner's property. Specifically, a landowner with a
federal taxable income at or below $120,000 for the income tax year
commencing on or after January 1, 2023, as adjusted for inflation and
rounded to the nearest hundred dollar amount for each income tax year
thereafter, is allowed a state income tax credit in an amount equal to 25%
of up to $2,500 in costs for wildfire mitigation measures. The maximum
total credit in a taxable year is $625.
