The “Holy Grail” of Networking

By Dave Tabor, Senior Vice President, Business Partnerships

35 people found it!

The “Holy Grail” of networking is easy to find if you know where to look.  It’s how to introduce oneself so that a flowing and stimulating conversation ensues.  Here’s mine: “I’m Dave Tabor, head of membership at the state chamber.  We’re the group that makes sure Colorado is a place where businesses can succeed.”

‘Thanks to Kendall Colman of Colman Coaching, those attending the program hosted by Andy Ahrendt of PCL Construction on October 26th are, like me, much more eager to network, and much more capable of doing so effectively!

Department of Revenue Convenes Stakeholder Meeting on Proposed Regulation for Partnerships & S-corporations

Please note that the Colorado Department of Revenue, Division of Taxation is convening a stakeholder workgroup to discuss whether to promulgate a regulation concerning the processing of payments made by partnerships and Subchapter S corporations on behalf of non-residents partners and shareholders.

Details on Stakeholder Meeting

Date:  December 11th
Time: 9:00am
Location1313 Sherman Street, Room 220, Denver

BackgroundColorado law requires pass-through entities, such as partnerships and S-corporations, to ensure that their nonresident partners, shareholders, or members pay Colorado income tax on their Colorado-source income. Pass-through entities can satisfy this requirement in one of three ways:

  • submit an agreement (DR 0107) signed by the nonresident attesting that the nonresident will file a Colorado income tax return and pay any applicable tax;
  • withhold and remit income tax on the non-resident’s behalf that the nonresident may claim on their own individual return (DR 0108); or
  • include the nonresident in a composite return in which the pass-through entity calculates and pays tax on the non-resident’s behalf (DR 106).

Purpose of Stakeholder Meeting:  This group will be convened to explore and consider changes that alleviate administrative burdens and improve efficiencies for taxpayers, tax practitioners, and the department.  Specifically, the Department will discuss the possibility of (1) eliminating Form DR 0108, (2) establishing a method for pass-through entities to remit withholding for all nonresident partners, shareholders, or members collectively, and (3) allowing nonresident partners, shareholders, and members to claim on their individual income tax returns the tax paid on their behalf in a composite return.

How to Participate:

  1. Provide comments about the advisability, scope, and content of a regulation  concerning processing Pass-thru Entities’ composite payments. Email your comments to November 20, 2017.
  2. If you are interested in being a member of the work group, please submit an application by November 20, 2017.  If you cannot attend in person please indicate in your application the need for a conference call and the Department will try to facilitate your participation.

Interested parties not selected as members of the work group may still take an active role in the rulemaking process by attending the work group meeting and providing comments during the public comment period of the work group meeting or by submitting written comments to

Please contact Loren Furman at or at 303-866-9642 if you should have any questions.
