House Bill 22-1223 — signed into law by Gov. Jared Polis in June 2022 — will give mobile homeowners, which includes manufactured homes, an exemption from property taxes if their residence is worth $28,000 or less. Under current legislation, property owners with mobile/manufactured homes worth more than $28,000 will need to pay taxes on their property.
Tax year 2022 is the first year the mobile home exemption is in effect.
As an example, and working with the current tax formulas in place (as of November 2023), mobile homeowners who are just above the $28,000 threshold could typically expect to receive a tax bill for less than $200 in January (payable in May).

In September 2023, the Jefferson County Assessor's Office sent letters indicating there had been a mistake with these notices, which the department has asked the Board of Equalization (BOE) to correct, and these property owners will have the right to appeal to the Board of Assessment Appeals (BAA) *
