How do I estimate my taxes?

The taxable value (assessed value) of your property is a percentage of its actual value. For 2022-2023, those percentages are as follows:

Type of Property

Assessment Rate

Tax Year 2022
Tax Year 2023
Non-residentialHotels, motels and B&Bs - 'lodging properties'
Renewable Energy Production26.4% (returns to 29% in 2024)26.4%
Agricultural Property26.4% (returns to 29% in 2024)26.4%
Commercial, Vacant, Industry29%27.9%
Oil & Gas87.5%87.5%
ResidentialMulti-family housing (i.e. apartments)6.80%6.765%
All other residential property6.95%6.765%

The State Legislature is responsible for setting these percentages.

Follow these simple steps to compute your taxes:

1. Actual Value X Assessment Rate = Assessed Value

2. Assessed Value X Mill Levy = Estimated Taxes

OR Actual Value X Assessment Rate X Mill Levy = Estimated Taxes

For Instance: The Actual Value of your improved residential property in the Town of Telluride is: $400,000. The residential assessment rate is x .0695. So, your Assessed Value is: $27,800. The Mill Levy of your Tax Area is: x .044604. So, your estimated taxes are: $1,239.99.
