Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
A nonresident is required to file a Colorado income tax return if they:
• are required to file a federal income tax return, and
• had taxable Colorado-source income.
If the mine was in Colorado then the commission is sourced to Colorado. The commission is included in your federal return so Colorado would expect to see a reporting on a Colorado non resident return for this as well.
Please let me know if you need clarification. If you do not then a positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I get credit for the response. (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES)
