Appealing Business Personal Property Valuation (Business Equipment)

The assessor mails a notice of valuation for business personal property to the owner on June 15. If the owner believes the assessor has incorrectly valued or classified the personal property, an appeal may be filed between June 15 and June 30.

Appeal Options

  1. Mail, fax or online
  2. In Person
  • You may mail to:
    Ron Sandstrom
    Jefferson County Assessor
    100 Jefferson County Parkway
    Golden, CO 80419
  • You may fax to 303-271-8613
  • You May File Online at: Personal Property Online Protest E-Form Filing

How to Appeal an Assessment

To appeal an assessment, you should explain why you believe the value is wrong and provide any combination of the following:

  • Copies of depreciation schedules
  • Income tax filing
  • A list of all equipment owned
  • A complete list of equipment that is leased, loaned or rented by the business

The list or schedules should reflect what was owned on January 1 and identify disposals prior to January 1. Disposals after January 1 are not prorated for the current tax year.

What to Expect After You Appeal

If you appeal, we will mail you a response by the last working day in July; that response will explain how to appeal to the County Board of Equalization (County Commissioners) if you are still dissatisfied. The County Board of Equalization (CBOE) starts meeting in September.

If you wish to appeal a CBOE decision, you must do so within 30 days of the decision. Your options will be described in the board's response.
