News and Updates:
Hello Jeffco Taxpayers,
As of June 10, 2021, Jefferson County is approx. 8% lower in property tax collections than in June 2020. As you know, many counties, including Jefferson County, have just adopted the “All Clear” pandemic status on May 16, 2021. Many taxpayers are still struggling to pay their property taxes. Several counties have received substantially less than the average year with many individuals and businesses still struggling to recover from the effects of COVD-19.
In an effort to collect delinquent property taxes and to make special districts and the County whole with regards to collections and distributions, I will be waiving delinquent property tax interest (per Senate Bill 21-279) from June 16 through September 15, 2021 to encourage property owners to pay their delinquent property taxes in 2021. There is still a declared emergency in Colorado and not everyone is recovering at the same speed from COVID-19. This one-year-only measure should help taxpayers get caught up in 2021 and avoid a tax lien sale.
If you have misplaced the coupon provided on the statement we mailed you in January, please call, email or Visit our Property Tax Records Site to find out how much you still owe. The Treasurer’s Payment Options Page provides all the available ways to pay property taxes.

Mailing Address Changes: It is important to keep your mailing address current. It is the property owner’s responsibility to update mailing addresses in writing to ensure delivery of the annual property tax and value notifications.
Unpaid Property Taxes: Every October the Treasurer’s office has an online auction for unpaid property taxes. We do not sell the property. The taxes are purchased by investors. The investor that holds the lien will be notified every August of any unpaid taxes and can endorse those taxes to the existing lien. Owners have three years from said tax sale to payoff the lien before it becomes eligible for a Treasurer’s Deed.
