The bill creates the Feeding Colorado fund (fund) in the state
treasury. A voluntary contribution designation line for the fund will
appear on the state individual income tax return form (form) for the 5
income tax years following the year that the executive director of the
department of revenue (department) certifies to the revisor of statutes that

there is space available on the form and that the fund is next in the queue.
Once the fund is placed on the form, the department is directed to
determine annually the total amount contributed to the fund and report
that amount to the state treasurer and the general assembly. The state
treasurer is required to credit that amount to the fund, and the general
assembly appropriates from the fund to the department the costs of
administering money designated for the fund. After that amount is
deducted, the money remaining in the fund at the end of a fiscal year is
transferred to Feeding Colorado.
Following the statutory 2-year grace period for new tax check-offs,
the fund is required to achieve the minimum contribution amount of
$50,000 per year to remain on the form.
The fund is repealed on the sixth income tax year following the
year in which the director files the certification, unless it is continued by
the general assembly before then.
