Holiday GraphicWe would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincerely thoughts and prayers to all the families affected by the recent shootings, hurricanes and fires that have plagued our country.  Through this very difficult holiday season, please know our thoughts are with you all.
 
What an interesting year 2017 has been for the Real Estate market.   As we all know, values in Adams County, the State of Colorado and the United States have skyrocketed. As real property owners, we are experiencing extreme growth in our investments creating increased equity and salability. However, that increase in value will increase your property tax which might not be desirable to those folks who have no intention of selling their property. As I have mentioned in past articles, it would be helpful to save a little extra every month to help with the increased taxes that your 2018 tax bill will reflect. If you are a senior or disabled veteran, please look at the requirements needed to qualify for these exemptions, as they can be a big help.  Also, you can take advantage of the Property Tax Deferral Program offered by the State of Colorado. This program allows you to postpone all or half of your property tax until you sell your property or your estate is settled after your death. For more information and to obtain an application, please visit the Adams County Treasurer’s website or call the Treasurer’s office at 720.523.6160.
 
We hope this information will be informative and helpful in your planning. Our doors are always open to listen to any concerns or questions that you might have. 
 
On behalf of the Adams County Assessor’s Office, we want to wish you all a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING and safe travels if your plans take you out of town during the holiday. 
 
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 PRIVILEDGE TO SERVE YOU!

LAUGH CORNER

 A man was driving and saw a truck stalled on the side of the highway that had ten penguins standing next to it. The man pulled over and asked the truck driver if he needed any help. The truck driver replied, "If you can take these penguins to the zoo while I wait for AAA that will be great!" The man agreed and the penguins hopped into the back of his car. Two hours later, the trucker was back on the road again and decided to check on the penguins. He showed up at the zoo and they weren't there! He headed back into his truck and started driving around the town, looking for any sign of the penguins, the man, or his car. While driving past a movie theater, the truck driver spotted the guy walking out with the ten penguins. The truck driver yelled, "What are you doing? You were supposed to take them to the zoo!" The man replied, "I did and then I had some extra money so I took them to go see a movie."
