DENVER (KDVR) — A bill introduced in the Colorado House of Representatives aims to exempt certain baby and toddler products from sales and use taxes starting in 2025.
House Bill 24-1027 was introduced in January and assigned to the House Committee on Finance. As of Tuesday, it was listed as “under consideration.”
A wide array of baby and toddler products are included on the list:
- Baby and toddler clothing
- Baby wipes
- Baby cribs
- Breast pumps and bottle sterilizers
- Baby strollers
- Baby monitors
- Playpens and play yards
- Safety products such as baby safety gates, cabinet locks/latches and electrical socket covers
- Pacifiers and teething rings
- Baby exercisers, jumpers, bouncer seats and swings
- Changing tables
The baby and toddler clothing is defined as clothing intended and marketed to kids aged 5 and under.
The same bill would also create two 14-day tax-free holidays a year for back-to-school items. The holidays would happen at the beginning of the year, and again in the summer near the start of the school year.
Diapers — both cloth and disposable — are already tax-exempt and have been since Jan. 1, 2023.
