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.

Paying off Tax Liens:  Please contact our office to request a payoff amount for a Tax Lien: 303-271-8330 or email us treasurer@jeffco.us. We will only accept cash or certified funds (e.g. Cashier’s Check or money order) payable to Jefferson County Treasurer for payment of a tax lien. Payments need to be received in our office by 5:00 pm the last business day of the month, postmarks are not accepted for tax liens.
