The Assessor's Office is responsible for valuing all real and personal property, including mobile homes, residential and commercial properties, and agricultural land. These valuations ensure that each taxpayer is assessed the appropriate amount of property taxes.
The Assessor is an elected position. Peggy Kanter was elected in 1978 and is next up for election in 2022. She was elected "Assessor of the Year" in 2007.
Visit the Colorado Department of Local Affairs website to learn more about the Colorado Department of Property Taxation. Here you will find information about understanding property taxes, property valuation and taxation for business and industry, senior citizen and disabled veterans property tax exemptions, and how agricultural property is valued.
2019 is a reassessment year, therefore all property owners will receive a notice of valuation (NOV). Notices of Valuation will be mailed May 1. The month of May is every taxpayer's opportunity to protest their parcel's valuation and/or classification. The County Assessor has answered a few of your questions in a Letter to the Editor about the valuation process.
