Please Note:

  • There is no ability to pre-date a Pre-certification Application. For each business income tax year, the business's eligibility to claim EZ credits is from the point of approved pre-certification or the start of the income tax year, whichever is later, through the end of the income tax year entered by the user.
  • Electronic application for EZ Pre-certification and Certification are standard except for specific EZ credits noted above or on the Tax Credit Resources page. 
  • Electronic filing of State Income Tax is generally required. The Certification form(s) and DR 1366 for EZ tax credits must be attached to the electronic filing. If one's e-file software does not support these attachments, they may be submitted through Revenue Online using the E-Filer Attachment option. Failure to include form DR 1366 may result in the enterprise zone credits being denied. [39-30-111, C.R.S.] For an electronic filing hardship exception, call 303-238-7378.
