Colorado law requires a two-year assessment cycle for all taxable real property. For tax years 2019 and 2020, the assessor is required to appraise all real property as of a June 30, 2018 level of value. Notices of Valuation were sent to all real property owners on May 1, 2019 for the biennial reassessment.

2020 is a non-reappraisal year, only those accounts experiencing an 'unusual condition' will receive a Notice of Value (mailed May 1, 2020). For all other accounts, the 2020 Tax Notice mailed in January serves as the Notice of Value on those properties. An unusual condition includes demolition, new construction, replats, parcel splits or combines, updates to subdivider discounts, changes in a property’s use, etc. Absent these types of changes, the value of your property remains the same as the 2019 assessment.

Appeal Information: 

Colorado law requires the county assessor to hear objections to real property classifications and valuations from May 1 thru June 1. Due to COVID Health Orders, the Assessor's Office is closed to the public. Therefore, no in-person protests or inquiries can be accommodated. Our preferred correspondence regarding your property is by email, phone, elections' ballot box (courthouse alley), or Fax (preferred in that order). To file a timely appeal, objections to the valuation or classification of real property must be postmarked or received no later than June 1, 2020. The assessor must make a decision concerning all filed protests and mail a written Notice of Determination by June 30, 2020.

Appeal forms are located on your Notice of Value. If you need a copy of an appeal form, please contact the Assessor's Office.
