The Assessor’s Office is responsible for valuing all real and personal property, including residential and commercial properties, mobile homes, agricultural land, and business personal property. These valuations ensure that each taxpayer is assessed the appropriate amount of property taxes.

2023 Appeal Announcement

On May 1, 2023 real property valuation appeals with the Assessor’s office begin. Real property value in Colorado is determined on a two-year cycle and 2023 real property value reflects market data as of June 30, 2022. All property owners will receive a Notice of Value this May.

The Assessors’ Office will be open to the public during the month of May for protests. The taxpayer may mail, fax, or email the protest and documentation. It is your responsibility to get confirmation that we received the protest.
