Property Tax Exemption for Seniors
The senior property tax exemption has been reinstated for property tax year 2017 that will be paid in 2018. For those who qualify, 50 percent of the first $200,000 in actual value of the primary residence is exempted from property tax. Applicants must be 65 years of age by January 1 of the application year and have lived in their primary residence at least ten (10) years. Once an exemption application is filed and approved by the assessor, the exemption remains in effect until a disqualifying event occurs. For new applicants, the exemption application must be submitted to the assessor by July 15. For questions regarding the exemption, please call the assessor’s office at 486-4107.
The property tax exemption also applies to qualifying disabled military veterans who have a 100 percent permanent and total disability rating from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, as a result of a service-connected disability. They must also have owned and occupied the property as their primary residence since January 1 of the application year. The senior exemption requirements of age and years of primary residency do not apply to the disabled veterans exemption. Veterans can contact the Colorado Department of Military and Veterans Affairs at 303-343-1268.
