Due to the numerous inquiries received by the Assessor's Office, we've compiled yearly abstracts detailing county mill levies
and tax information. For your convenience, this information is posted on our web site. Please note the Assessor does not set any tax levy.
County taxes are levied by the Board of County Commissioners. City and town taxes are levied by city and town officials. Special
district taxes are levied by their boards of directors; and School taxes are levied by school boards. After the levies are
certified to the County Assessor, it is then the duty of the assessor to extend the taxes on property and create the tax warrant
Colorado law requires the County Treasurer to mail a notice of property taxes to each owner of record even though a mortgage
company may be responsible for payment. Taxes for the preceding year attach as a lien on January 1 of the following year.
When to Pay Property Taxes
If the tax amount is less than $25, you must pay in total no later than April 30. If the tax amount is greater than $25, you
may make two payments. The first payment is due no later than February 28. The second payment is due no later than June 15.
If you pay your taxes in one total amount, the payment is due no later than April 30. If your payment is late, delinquent
interest is added to the tax amount as mandated by state law. Failure to receive a tax notice does not relieve the owner's
responsibility or liability for paying taxes on time.
