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.
