The taxable value (assessed value) of your property is a percentage of its actual value. For residential improved property (residential property with a livable improvement on it) that percentage is 7.15% (or .0715). For all other real and personal property, the percentage is 29% (or .29). The State Legislature is responsible for setting these percentages and does so each reappraisal or odd-numbered year; i.e., 2017, 2019, 2021.
Follow these simple steps to compute your taxes:
1. Actual Value X Assessment Percentage = Assessed Value
2. Assessed Value X Mill Levy = Estimated Taxes
For Instance: The Actual Value of your improved residential property is: $ 400,000 The residential assessment percentage is x .0715 So, your Assessed Value is: $ 28,600 The Mill Levy of your Tax Area is: x .04294 So, your estimated taxes are: $ 1,228.00
You can find you tax area by finding the approximate location of your property on the
You find your current Mill Levy by looking at right hand side of the current

Tax bills are sent out no later than the last business day of January of each year. For questions concerning your taxes, please call the Treasurer’s Office at 970-728-4451.
Full payment of taxes can be made by April 30, 2020 or half payments can be made by February 28, 2020 and June 15, 2020. For questions concerning your taxes, please call the Treasurer’s Office at 970-728-4451.
All persons possessing or controlling personal property with a total actual value greater than $7,700 (per owner, per county) on January 1, 2020 are required to report their personal property to the Assessor by April 15, 2020. Personal Property Declaration Schedules are mailed to every person, business, or company known to own, possess or control taxable personal property in the county during the month of January.
The value of your personal property is based on information submitted by you on your Personal Property Declaration Schedule, which is sent to you in January. You must return (file) your Personal Property Declaration Schedule by no later than April 15th or each year. The information you provide on your Personal Property Declaration Schedule includes the original cost or the item and the year the item was put in service. A depreciation schedule is used to adjust the value of the item according to type and industrial life span of the personal property. If you fail to return your Personal Property Declaration Schedule, the value of your personal property will be determined using “the best information available.”
If the value of your personal property as reported in your Personal Property Declaration Schedule is less than $7,700 (the Exemption Level), then a Notice of Valuation will not be sent and you will not be taxed for your personal property.
Owners of taxable personal property may challenge the County Assessor’s valuation of their property between June 15 and June 30 of the current tax year. A Personal Property Protest Form is attached to the taxpayer’s Personal Property Notice of Valuation. Taxpayers who disagree with their personal property valuations may object by U.S. Mail, by FAX, in person. If the taxpayer wishes to protest by mail, the protest must be mailed to the San Miguel County Assessor, P. O. Box 506, Telluride, Colorado, and postdated no later than June 30. If the taxpayer wishes to protest by FAX, the protest must be FAXED to 970-369-1007 by no later than 5:00 PM Mountain DST on June 30. If the taxpayer prefers to protest in person, the protest must be delivered to the offices of the County Assessor, 333 Colorado Avenue, Second Floor, Telluride, Colorado, by no later than 5:00 PM Mountain DST on June 30.
A Personal Property Protest Form is included in your Personal Property Notice of Valuation, or you can download a Personal Property Protest Form online.
The Assessor must make a decision on your protest and mail you a Notice of Determination by July 10, 2019. If you are satisfied with the Assessor’s determination, the tax bill you receive the next January will be based on the value and classification reflected on the Notice of Determination.
If you are not satisfied with the Assessor’s determination, or if you do not receive a Notice of Determination from the Assessor, you must file a written appeal with the County Board of Equalization (P. O. Box 1170, Telluride, Colorado 81435) on or before July 15, 2019. The County Board of Equalization will notify you by mail of the hearing date, time and place where you may present evidence to substantiate your case. Note: To preserve your appeal rights, you may be required to prove you have filed a timely appeal; therefore, we recommend all correspondence be mailed with proof of mailing.
The County Board of Equalization will conclude hearings and render decisions by the close of business on August 5th, 2019. The County Board must mail you a decision within five business days of the date of its decision. If you are satisfied with the County Board’s decision, the tax bill you receive next January will be based on the valuation and classification reflected in the County Board’s decision.
For tax years 2019 and 2020, Colorado County Assessors are required by law to reappraise all real property to reflect a June 30, 2018 level of value. That level of value represents a ‘snapshot’ of property values during an 18 month period from January 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018.
By May 1, the County Assessor will mail a Notice of Valuation to all property owners. In intervening years (even-numbered years, i.e. 2018, 2020, etc.), that valuation appears on the Tax Bill sent to you by the Treasurer's Office.
Your Notice of Valuation is a document you receive in May of every odd year (2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, etc) giving you the current value and classification of your real property as determined during the Valuation Period. The Notice of Valuation also indicates the valuation and classification of your property during the last valuation period.
The current Valuation Period is January 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018.
From May 1 through June 1, owners of real property may protest the value or the classification established by the Assessor. This protest period provides an opportunity for taxpayers to inform the Assessor of errors in classification, property description, or other discrepancies that may result in a reduction in value or a change in classification.
If you choose to mail a written protest, you may complete the protest form, and mail it to the Assessor at PO Box 506, Telluride, CO, 81435 or FAX it to 970-369-1007. To preserve your right to protest, your mailed real property protest must be postmarked no later than June 1. Faxes must be delivered by 5:00 PM Mountain DST, June 1, and must be verified as received.
If you choose to present oral or written objections to the Assessor in person, you may elect to complete a protest form and deliver it to the Assessor at 333 W Colorado Ave, 2nd Floor, Telluride, CO. For your convenience, you may make an appointment to speak to an appraiser; however, please call ahead for an appointment at 970-728-3174. To preserve your right to protest, you must appear in the County Assessor’s Office on or before June 1. Please note - after June 1, your right to protest is lost.
If you are not satisfied with the Assessor’s determination, or if you do not receive a Notice of Determination from the Assessor, you must file a written appeal with the County Board of Equalization (P. O. Box 1170, Telluride, Colorado 81435) on or before July 15. The County Board of Equalization will notify you by mail of the hearing date, time and place where you may present evidence to substantiate your case. Note: To preserve your appeal rights, you may be required to prove you have filed a timely appeal; therefore, we recommend all correspondence be mailed with proof of mailing.
Evidence includes documentation such as the sales prices of properties similar to yours that sold during the Valuation Period; or between January 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.
The County Board of Equalization will conclude hearings and render decisions by the close of business on August 5th. The County Board must mail you a decision within five business days of the date of its decision. If you are satisfied with the County Board’s decision, the tax bill you receive next January will be based on the valuation and classification reflected in the County Board’s decision.
Abatement petitions may be filed within two years of the date the taxes were levied (January 1st of each year), provided that:
1. The property valuation was not appealed previously for that specific tax year and an Assessor’s Notice of Determination issued; or 2. If it was appealed, the abatement petition is not based on overvaluation by the Assessor’s Office; and 3. The person filing for abatement was the owner of record during that year.
Note: The abatement process is independent of all other forms of appeal and is reviewed on the merits of information provided with the filing of the abatement petition. The taxpayer is to attach any supporting documentation to the abatement petition
Abatements must be filed within two years after January 1 of the year following the year in which the taxes were levied. For example, a taxpayer has until the first working day in January of 2021 to file an abatement petition for tax year 2018.
If the Assessor’s recommendation is accepted by the taxpayer, and if the amount to be refunded is less than $10,000, then the abatement is sent to the Treasurer’s Office for the refund to be processed.
If the Assessor’s recommendation is accepted by the taxpayer and if the amount to be refunded is more than $10,000, then the abatement must be approved by the Board of County Commissioners and it must also be approved by the Colorado Property Tax Administrator.

Governor Polis’ “Stay at Home” order is now in effect until April 11th. This is very similar to our county’s “Shelter in Place” order, and residents will need to follow the state order until that time. However, SMC’s Public Health order is more restrictive with specific provisions for San Miguel County. Residents should follow our County’s order, which will ensure compliance with the state order, while it is in place. It is set to expire April 3, 2020, unless it is extended at the April 1, 2020, BOCC meeting.
San Miguel County staff are manning a hotline and are able to answer your non-medical questions concerning public health orders and more. The hotline number is 970-728-3844. If you do not want to speak to someone on the phone, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new Public Health orders described today go into effect at 12:01 a.m., Thursday, March 19, 2020 until Friday, April 3 at 11:59 p.m. The order will be revisited by the San Miguel County Board of County Commissioners at their regular meeting on Wednesday, April 1, 2020.
No, at this time there are no plans to close roads or barricade any community. Though the gondola is closed, public transit will remain open, with decreased ridership available- intended for trips to medical/grocery and essential service visits only.
There will not be any barricades into or out of San Miguel County, but we ask that you limit out of county travel for essential purposes only and comply with all social distancing requirements (6 foot distance, frequent handwashing for 20 seconds etc) (see page 10-11 in the order). These include, but are not limited to: essential activities, government functions, businesses; travel to care for elderly, minors, dependents and persons with disabilities; travel to return to your home; travel required by law enforcement or court order.
Restaurants are permitted to begin takeout and delivery of food on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at 3 p.m. The same goes for alcohol and cannabis stores. No bars or restaurants will be allowed to have customers in for dining or consuming.
Second homeowners are strongly recommended to return to their primary homes unless they are prepared to shelter in place for up to a month without outside assistance. If they are able and interested in being here for an extended, unknown period of time, they may stay and be prepared to follow county guidelines. Visitors are strongly encouraged to leave or not come to San Miguel County during this timeframe.
Property managers should not take new bookings/reservations until April 3, 2020 (and that will likely be extended) and should help their guests leave as soon as possible, only with exception to emergency response agency support or if visitors are unable to leave.
Residential and commercial construction orders are in the process of being revisited on being considered “essential services” and will be shut down or severely restricted as of 12:01am on 3/21/20. "Essential Business" in our current orders include "Plumbers, Electricians, Exterminators, Internet or broadband providers and other service providers who provide services that are necessary to maintain the safety, sanitation and essential operation of residences, Essential Activities and "Essential Businesses."
From the questions that we’ve received about the Public Health order regarding construction that went into effect at midnight 3/20/20, here are some of the answers to the questions we’ve received.
We know this is hard for you and your workers. We want you to get back to work as soon as possible. Please inform your workers about the community services information on our website.
No, construction is only allowed to do emergency repairs or to secure sites from the public and the weather. Otherwise no, non-essential construction is allowed to continue.
Yes, we want you and your crew to leave your sites safe and not open to the public- filling in holes, covering open areas, fencing off areas and protecting your site from the elements (winter protection). We want your crews to accomplish this as quickly as possible so that they can leave your job-sites safe and then get home to shelter in place during this critical timeframe to curb the spread of the virus.
Plumbers, electricians, exterminators, internet providers and other service providers whose work is necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation and essential operation of residences are considered “essential businesses”. All other house calls should be cancelled during this order. If you do make an emergency house calls, be sure to practice social distancing and wear gloves or a mask, if applicable, and wash your hands thoroughly afterwards.
No, this does not meet the intent of keeping residents, including your employees, sheltered at home. Even healthy people can carry and spread the Covid-19 virus and we are learning that some people are far more susceptible than others.
Emergency repairs are allowed in this order, but again the goal is to accomplish them safely and quickly so that all residents can get back to the shelter in place orders.
No, it is not allowed under the current orders, even with social distancing. These orders currently run through April 3, 2020. The point of the order is to discourage any non- essential reason for unrelated people to meet up, touch or go to new places during this critical timeframe.
No, the local schools have set up online learning for all grades and this will continue during this time. The Telluride School District and Norwood school districts are offering basic food assistance for families in need Monday-Friday. Please call 970-369-1205 for more information.
Essential Businesses, as outlined in the order include: healthcare operations, essential governmental functions and infrastructure, grocery and convenience stores, food banks, food cultivation (farming, livestock, fishing), businesses that provide food, shelter and social services, media services, gas stations and auto-repair facilities, banks, hardware stores, laundromats, drycleaners. Please see Page 7 of the order for more details and guidelines. All essential business must be performed in compliance with social distancing and practice enhanced disinfection protocols.
Yes, that is the normal essential maintenance that is allowed to continue.
San Miguel County is implementing a County-wide voluntary blood test for COVID-19 and requesting all residents “shelter in place” beginning tonight (3/19/20) at 12:01 am. The blood test will show a person’s immunity for COVID-19 and will help health officials learn who is protected against the virus and who might still be at risk. We are requesting we adhere to strict self-isolation and only essential personnel travel away from home during this timeframe.
No, it will be voluntary. Widespread public testing is targeted to begin the week of March 23. The testing is being charged free of charge and will be administered by San Miguel County Public Health Department and Telluride Medical Center.
First you need to sign up online to be tested if this is possible for you at c19SMC.com. The best way to be notified of when you will be tested is to sign up for CodeRED Alerts. You can do this on the website on the COVID-19 page by clicking on the CodeRED Icon on the right side ribbon bar. This way you will be notified if there are changes in the schedule.
Tests will be sent to a lab with results expected to be available within a few days. The test will ideally be repeated in 14 days so officials can gauge if infection is increasing or decreasing. The blood test will show a person’s immunity for COVID-19 and will help health officials learn who is protected against the virus and who might still be at risk.
Please read our March 31st press release which outlines the notification process.
The goal is to detect and contain community spread and provide a more accurate assessment of the disease’s prevalence. The highest concentrated population centers of the county will be tested first and then the testing will be offered to all other communities within the county.
The 2018 Census American Community Survey reports a total population of 7,968. The population as of the 2010 Census was 7,359.
Approximately 66% of the lands in the county are managed by Federal and State agencies.

El Condado de San Miguel está implementando una prueba voluntaria en todo el Condado para COVID-19 y solicita a todos los residentes "refugio en el lugar" a partir de esta noche (19/3/20) a las 12:01 am. En los próximos días, obtendremos más detalles sobre cuándo y cómo se realizarán las pruebas. Solicitamos que nos adhiramos al estricto autoaislamiento y que solo el personal esencial viaje fuera de casa durante este período de tiempo.
No, será voluntario. El objetivo de las pruebas públicas generalizadas es comenzar la semana del 23 de marzo. Las pruebas se cobran de forma gratuita y serán administradas por el Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado de San Miguel y el Centro Médico Telluride.
Las pruebas se enviarán a un laboratorio y se espera que los resultados estén disponibles dentro de unos días. La prueba idealmente se repetirá en 14 días para que los funcionarios puedan evaluar si la infección está aumentando o disminuyendo. El análisis de sangre mostrará la inmunidad de una persona para COVID-19 y ayudará a los funcionarios de salud a saber quién está protegido contra el virus y quién aún podría estar en riesgo.
El objetivo es detectar y contener la propagación de la comunidad y proporcionar una evaluación más precisa de la prevalencia de la enfermedad. Los centros de población más concentrados del condado se evaluarán primero y luego se ofrecerán a todas las demás comunidades dentro del condado.
La orden de "quedarse en casa" del gobernador Polis está vigente hasta el 11 de abril. Esto es muy similar a la orden de "Refugio en el lugar" de nuestro condado, y los residentes deberán seguir la orden estatal hasta ese momento. Sin embargo, la orden de salud pública de SMC es más restrictiva con disposiciones específicas para el condado de San Miguel. Los residentes deben seguir la orden de nuestro condado, que garantizará el cumplimiento de la orden estatal, mientras esté vigente. Está previsto que caduque el 3 de abril de 2020, a menos que se prorrogue en la reunión del BOCC del 1 de abril de 2020.
El Centro de Salud Mental entiende que nuestra comunidad está luchando durante el brote de COVID-19 y que tienen una Línea de Apoyo disponible para que la gente llame. Según su sitio web, "La línea de soporte del centro es una línea de llamada gratuita las 24 horas para que pueda conectarse con nuestro atento personal cuando necesite un oído atento. Nuestro personal está aquí para escucharlo y ayudarlo durante este momento difícil. Cada uno de nosotros ocasionalmente necesita hablar, romper el aislamiento y expresar nuestras emociones de una manera saludable, sin prejuicios y confidencial. Permítanos apoyarlo durante este momento difícil ".

Se recomienda a los visitantes que se vayan o no vengan al condado de San Miguel durante este período de tiempo.
Los administradores de propiedades no deben tomar nuevas reservas / reservas hasta el 3 de abril de 2020 (y eso probablemente se extenderá) y deben ayudar a sus huéspedes a irse lo antes posible, solo con excepción del apoyo de la agencia de respuesta de emergencia o si los visitantes no pueden irse.
Las órdenes de construcción residencial y comercial están en proceso de ser revisadas al ser consideradas "servicios esenciales" y se cerrarán o restringirán severamente a partir de las 12:01 am del 21/3/20.

A partir de las preguntas que hemos recibido sobre la orden de Salud Pública con respecto a la construcción que entró en vigencia a la medianoche del 20/03/20, estas son algunas de las respuestas a las preguntas que hemos recibido.
Sabemos que esto es difícil para usted y sus trabajadores. Queremos que vuelva a trabajar lo antes posible. Informe a sus trabajadores sobre la información de servicios comunitarios en nuestro sitio web.

No, esto no cumple con la intención de mantener a los residentes, incluidos sus empleados, protegidos en sus hogares. Incluso las personas sanas pueden portar y propagar el virus Covid-19 y estamos aprendiendo que algunas personas son mucho más susceptibles que otras.
Sí, ese es el mantenimiento esencial normal que se permite continuar.
We work for the veteran and his or her family, not the VA.
The San Miguel County Veterans Services Office was established by state law to advise and assist veterans, their dependents, and their survivors concerning any VA benefits which such person may be, or may have been, entitled to receive under the laws of the United States or the State of Colorado. The office is not a part of the Department of Veteran Affairs, which is a Federal government agency but serves as a liaison between the claimant and the VA.

Disability Compensation is a monthly payment made to a veteran who has a disability for a disease or injury that was incurred or aggravated by service in the armed forces. Payments are based on the degree of disability. VA pays additional allowances for your dependents if your disabilities are evaluated as 30 percent or more disabling. A special monthly compensation rate may be authorized for veterans whose service-connected disabilities are very severe and meet certain statutory requirements. Service connection for a disability may be granted based on the following conditions:
Important Note: When a service connection for a disability or disease has been established and the condition worsens, a claim for an increase of the rating should be filed.
Total disability will be found to exist when there is an impairment of mind or body which is certain to continue throughout the life of the disabled veteran and renders it impossible for the average person to follow a substantially gainful occupation. A single or combined disability that is ratable at 100%.
Note: There are specific benefits that apply when a rating is classified as total and permanent.
Individual unemployability may be applied for when there is an exceptional disability factor that substantially interferes with the veteran’s ability to sustain gainful employment. A veteran must meet one of the following criteria:
Temporary 100% Rating for Convalescence
Hospitalization – A total 100% temporary disability rating will be assigned, without regard to the rating schedule, when a service-connected disability has required hospitalization treatment by the Department of Veterans Affairs, for a period in excess of 21 days.
Surgery – A total 100% temporary disability rating may be assigned when your service-connected disability resulted in surgery, post-hospital convalescence, immobilization with a cast, or surgery of a major joint. When the requirements are met, the rating will be effective from the first day of hospitalization and will continue for a period of 1, 2, or 3 months. Extensions may be authorized under certain circumstances.
Special Monthly Compensation Awards include:
Loss of Use:
A special monthly compensation is payable in addition to the basic rate of compensation for the anatomical loss OR loss of use of body members or function, due to a service-connected disability. Examples include: hand, foot, eyes, paired organs or extremities, creative organs, buttocks, kidneys, loss of speech (aphonia), and deafness.
Housebound is an increased monthly pension amount paid to a claimant who is substantially confined to his or her home because of permanent disability. Additionally, if you are a Veteran, you may qualify for the increased housebound amount if:
You may not receive enhanced or special monthly pension without first establishing eligibility for VA pension. However, because enhanced pension is based upon a higher income limit, a claimant may be ineligible for basic pension due to excessive income but may be eligible for increased pension benefits. You may not receive pension at the A&A and Housebound rate at the same time.
Aid and Attendance:
Aid and attendance will be considered when the veteran is so nearly helpless that they are unable to care for themselves and cannot perform basic tasks such as dressing, undressing, keeping clean, feeding, attending to the wants of nature, frequent adjustments of special prosthetic or orthopedic appliances, or to protect them from the hazards and dangers incident to daily living. Conditions requiring this care must be service connected.
When a veteran is in need of a higher level of care (hospitalization, nursing home, or institutional care) because of his service-connected disabilities, a higher level of monthly aid and attendance allowance may be granted.
The VA helps veterans and their families cope with financial challenges by providing supplemental income through the Veterans Pension benefit. Veterans Pension is a tax-free monetary benefit payable to low-income wartime Veterans.
Generally, a Veteran must have at least 90 days of active duty service, with at least one day during a wartime period to qualify for a VA Pension. If you entered active duty after September 7, 1980, generally you must have served at least 24 months or the full period for which you were called or ordered to active duty (with some exceptions) with at least one day during a wartime period.
In addition to meeting minimum service requirements, the veteran must be:
Additional Pension Allowances:
Veterans or surviving spouses who are eligible for VA pension and are housebound or require the aid and attendance of another person may be eligible for an additional monetary payment.
Eligible Wartime Periods
Under current law, VA recognizes the following wartime periods to determine eligibility for VA Pension benefits:
You may be eligible for several types of VA education and training benefits, but there are many things to consider before you apply for a GI Bill program. For most participants, the Post-9/11 GI Bill is the best option. Other students would benefit more from the Montgomery GI Bill. Different programs offer different benefits, so it’s important to choose the program that will best meet your needs.
You can use the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) GI BILL COMPARISON CHART to get detailed information on eligibility requirements and compare the education benefits available through the following programs:
