2024 TAX NOTICES (2023 TAXES) WILL BE MAILED ON
FEBRUARY 2, 2024.
Legislative changes enacted by the Colorado Legislature to accommodate property tax relief will delay the certification of the County tax rolls. The new deadline for the later tax roll certification is January 24, 2024.
The reason for the delay in the deadline calendar by the legislature is to give taxing authorities sufficient time to certify their mill levies and to give county assessors more time to gather data.
Please be aware that these changes do not alter the first-half payment due date for property taxes on February 29, 2024, which is a Leap Year. The Colorado Legislature chose not extend the payment deadline to ensure that special districts like fire departments, school districts, health districts, hospitals, and other public entities have the revenue to continue to operate.
Once the tax roll process is complete property owners will receive their statements which takes about two weeks by mail. Property owners can also sign up for E-notices which saves time, postage and paper. If you wish to participate in this program and would like to have property tax notices sent electronically, please complete this form.
ONLINE PAYMENTS ARE UNAVAILABLE 9/1/23 - 1/15/24. ALL TAXES MUST NOW BE PAID VIA CASH, CERTIFIED FUNDS (MONEY ORDER OR CASHIER'S CHECK), OR BANK WIRE. PERSONAL CHECKS ARE NOT ACCEPTED THIS TIME OF YEAR.
PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICE TO CONFIRM THE BALANCE DUE ON YOUR ACCOUNT.
