2024 Real Property Appeals
Colorado law requires a two year reassessment cycle for all property. 2023 is the first, or reappraisal year of the current two year cycle. For most property, the valuation for assessment for the 2024 tax year will be the same as it was for 2023. The Assessor is required to notify you of your value each year for real property. The notice describes the property you own, gives the actual value for both the prior and current year, and provides an opportunity for you to present your objection to the Assessor. Notices are mailed May 1.
May through June 8 of each year is set aside for the Assessor's Office to hear appeals on property valuation. This year, the appeals for real property must be postmarked or delivered to the Assessor on or before June 10.

The appraisal data used to establish real property value was from the 24-month period ending June 30, 2022. If data is insufficient during this time period, assessors may use data from the five-year period ending June 30, 2022.

When you receive a Notice of Valuation, study it carefully! The deadlines for appeal are statutorily driven. If you feel the value the Assessor has placed on your property is incorrect, you may wish to inspect the Assessor’s records on your property and other properties. Records on land and buildings are public information, and you have the right to examine them. You have the right to appeal your value each year. May through June 8 of each year is set aside for the Assessor's Office to hear appeals on property valuation.

The Assessor's Office will welcome appeals of the valuation of real property from May 1 until June 10, 2024. If you believe you may be ill, please do not visit our office in person. We urge you to submit real property appeals online. If unable to submit online, or in person, you may use USPS, FedEx, UPS, or fax. For an appeal to be successful, the owner should provide an appraisal dated in the six months prior to June 30, 2022, evidence of details of sales from the subject or comparable properties, or information correcting the details of the property that the Assessor may not know. A follow-up inspection of the property may be necessary.

Tax Authority Contact Information

The formula to calculate your 2023 taxes, payable in 2024 is

 

                   Assessed Value x Tax Area Mill Levy = Property Tax Amount

 

For the tax year 2023, the assessment rate for residences is 6.70%, renewable energy and agricultural property is 26.4%.  Generally, all other property including commercial, commercial lodging, industrial and vacant land are assessed at 27.9%, 39-1-104, C.R.S.

 

Example -   Actual Value                  $600,000

                   Single Family

                      Residential Rate    x       0.06765

                   Assessed Value                  40,590

 

Currently, the mill levy is the missing part of the above formula.  Each year your taxing authorities determine the revenue needed and allowed under law to provide services for the following year.  The taxing authorities calculate a tax rate (mill levy) based on the revenue needed from property tax and the total assessed value of real and personal property located within their boundaries.

 

Your Tax Area is listed on your Notice of Valuation.  Click the down arrow on the Tax Area column.  Find and choose your specific Tax Area – this tax area could be displayed as “236”, “P236” or ”SC236”. 

The authorities displayed are the specific taxing authorities that your property taxes support.
