Bill would exempt many baby products from Colorado sales taxes

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
  • Bottles
  • 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.
