Treasurer - Public Trustee

DELAY OF MAILING PROPERTY TAX STATEMENTS

Legislative changes enacted by the Colorado Legislature to accommodate property tax relief will delay the certification of the County tax rolls. The new deadline for the tax roll certification is January 24, 2024.  The reason for the delay is to give taxing authorities sufficient time to certify their mill levies and to give county assessors more time to gather data.

Please be aware that these changes do not alter the first-half payment due date, February 28, 2024. The Colorado Legislature chose not to extend the payment deadline to ensure that special districts like fire departments, school districts, health districts, hospitals, and other public entities have the revenue to continue to operate.

Once the tax roll process is complete, property owners will receive their statements by mail in early February.  The property tax amount will be available after February 1st by clicking on SEARCH PROPERTY TAX RECORDS on the left of this page.  Contact our office at (970) 249-3565 or email etreasurer@montrosecounty.net for assistance.
