Property Tax Information and Payments

Per Colorado Revised Statutes, tax notices are mailed once a year, usually in January. It is the responsibility of the taxpayer to pay property taxes, whether a bill is received or not. If you have not received your tax notice by the middle of February each year, please contact our office.

Payments may be made in half payments or in one full payment as follows:

  • First half payment due February 28 (February 29 in 2024)
  • Second half payment due June 15 (June 17 in 2024)
  • Full payment due April 30

Interest is charged at 1% per month after each due date. Delinquent notices are mailed July 1. All payments received after September 1 must be paid in the form of cash or cashier’s check. Delinquent taxes are subject to be advertised and sold at the annual tax lien sale, usually held in November.

Remember if you have a mortgage and you have your taxes held in escrow, your mortgage company will cover your payment.  If you pay first, then you have to get your escrow from your mortgage company.

  • online via secure portal (Statement of Tax Dues and receipts are also available here)
