Property Value Information

Revaluations

All property in Colorado is revalued every odd-numbered year, therefore 2019 is a revaluation year. 

Notice of Valuations for all properties, except personal property, are sent out May 1st. Notice of Valuations for personal property are sent out June 15th. 

Market sales which are used for the 2019 reappraisal year are sales that occurred between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2018.

  • Your real property was valued as it existed January 1st of the current year. The tax notice you receive next January will be based on this value.
  • All property in Colorado is revalued every odd-numbered year. (39-1-104(10.2)(a), C.R.S.)
  • The appraisal sale data used to establish real property value was from the 18-month period ending June 30, 2018 (39-1-104(10.2)(a), C.R.S.). If the data is insufficient during this time period, the Assessor may also use data from a 5-year period ending June 30, 2018. State statute prohibits the use of appraisal sale data after June 30, 2018; that data may be considered in the 2021 appraisal. (39-1-104(10.2)(d), C.R.S.)
  • An assessment percentage will be applied to the actual value of your property before property taxes are calculated.
  • The 2017-2018 assessment percentage for improved residential properties was 7.2%. The 2019 assessment percentage for improved residential properties has not yet been determined by the Colorado legislature.  Generally, almost all other property, including vacant land, is assessed at 29%. (39-1-104.2 and 39-1.104(1), C.R.S.)
  • A change in the projected residential assessment percentage is not grounds for protest or abatement of taxes. (39-5-121(1), C.R.S.)
