Property Taxes - Billing
The owner of record should receive a Property Tax Statement for the prior year’s tax by the end of January. The statement is mailed to the owner of record as their name and mailing address are listed on the Tax Roll. The Tax Roll is prepared and maintained by the County Assessor.
Failure to receive a tax statement does not exempt the taxpayer from prompt payment of the taxes due. If you have not received a tax statement by February 7th, please contact the Treasurer’s Office at (970) 641-2231 and a duplicate statement will be mailed.
If you pay taxes as part of your monthly house payment, you will need to make sure that your mortgage company is paying your taxes. Usually you will receive a statement from your mortgage company showing the payment of property taxes from your escrow account. State Statutes mandate that the Treasurer mail the tax statement to the owner of record, as their name and address are listed on the Tax Roll certified by the Assessor. We do not provide duplicate copies for mortgage companies, although when they contact us, we provide them with a copy of the tax roll for their convenience.
Property Taxes - Payments
Payments may be paid in two equal installments or in one full installment. To avoid penalty interest charges, the first half must be paid by the last day of February and the second half must be paid by June 15th. If taxes are paid in one installment, payment must be made by April 30th. When the tax amount is twenty-five dollars ($25) or less, the half-payment option does not apply, therefore a single payment must be received by April 30th. Payments bearing U.S. postmarks reflective of these dates are acceptable. If your payment is delinquent, penalty interest is added to the tax amount. See the Interest Calculation box below.
Note: If a due date falls on a holiday or weekend, payments will be accepted on the following business day with no delinquent interest.
Only HALF or FULL payments will be accepted. Partial payments are not acceptable. All payments must be made in U.S. Funds and drawn on a U.S. Bank.
If paid in installments, interest charges on the first half begins March 1 and interest on the second half beginning June 16. If paying full, interest charges begin May 1.
Interest must be included with payment or your payment will be returned to you. Calculate as follows:
Less than $25
|Payment after August
||Please contact the Treasurer's office for proper amount of interest and other fees.|
Checks subject to collections. $20 fee will be charged for all checks returned for non-sufficient funds.
