For CONVENIENCE AND MONETARY SAVINGS TO THE TAX PAYERS, this year for the first time we will be mailing a post card with your value and appeal information on it. This change will save the county around $40,000.  Effective June 15th, you can see your full Notice of on our web site at www.assessor.adcogov.org/

We at the Assessor’s office want to be considerate of our property owner’s time. In doing so, effective June 15, 2017 you can now appeal your value using the On-Line Appeal Process. You will need to use the Account and Access Key numbers found on your Notice of Valuation postcard to begin the appeal process. The process is user friendly; just follow the prompts for easy online appeal.

APPEALS FOR REAL PROPERTY CLOSED AT MIDNIGHT JUNE 1ST. This reappraisal year, Adams County is abiding by the late filing schedule of AUGUST 31ST for the mailing of THE NOTICE OF DETERMINATIONS (NODs) to all property owners that appealed. We want to THANK EVERYONE who took the time to appeal their value. Because we determine value using the CAMA (Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal) process, the only way we are able to look at your individual property, and make sure that all the characteristics are accurate and the value is correct, is when you appeal.  We will take the next three months to evaluate those appeals and make adjustments wherever possible.  

We have a newly designed Assessor website. It is our hope that with the addition of: on-line appeals (available only May 1st through June 1st); the ability to view all valid sales; and comparables for property (if applicable), that the new website will supply adequate information for property owners to view the aspects of how your property was valued. We welcome any feedback you may have.

JUST A REMINDER** NEW on our website, are the ASSESSOR’S PROPERTY SKETCHES AND ASSESSOR’S PROPERTY PHOTOS.  Using the GIS Interactive Map link on the website, they can be found through the “Advanced Web Map” under Hyperlinks.

 As appraisers, we know that raising value, which ultimately raises property tax, is not a popular process. But, it is the ONLY PROCESS, BY COLORADO LAW that we must follow. When everyone’s property is valued fairly and equitably, then everyone shares fairly in supporting the needs and responsibilities of our county. OUR GOAL IN THE ASSESSOR’S OFFICE IS NOT ONLY TO INSURE THAT VALUES ACCURATELY REFLECT THE SALES AND MARKET FORCES, BUT TO REDUCE INEQUITIES AMONG COMPARABLE PROPERTIES.

THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING US THE PRIVILEGE TO SERVE YOU!
