The federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which became law in

December 2017, added distributions for elementary or secondary school
expenses as qualified distributions from a qualified state tuition program,
also known as a 529 account, thereby allowing, on the federal level,
income tax-free distributions for elementary and secondary school
expenses in addition to already authorized income tax-free distributions
for higher education expenses.
The bill amends Colorado law to ensure that a taxpayer may not
claim a deduction for contributions to qualified state tuition programs for
elementary or secondary school expenses and clarifies that such expenses
are not qualified distributions.
