Colorado’s constitution dictates that in May of every odd-numbered year, each county assessor must provide every property owner with a “Notice of Value” of their real estate as of June 30th of the previous year.
Your property taxes for 2023 (due next spring) and for 2024 will be based on that valuation, so you may want to appeal that valuation by the June deadline. As I have done in this column every other year for the past two decades, I will publish a guide for how to determine whether you have a case for reducing your valuation and the most successful way to submit it.
Check www.JimSmithColumns.com for what I wrote in May 2021 and May 2019 to see that process, which may require some updating when I publish it next month.
