APPEALS AND IMPORTANT DATES

2017 Real Property Appeals Deadline closed on June 1st, 2017 and the Personal Property Deadline closed on June 30th, 2017.  

The Assessor is no longer accepting Senior Exemption/Disabled Exemption applications for 2017. (You can apply for the Senior Exemption/Disabled Exemption after January of 2018 for the 2018 tax year.)

Notices of Determination (NOD) for Real and Personal Property will be mailed by August 31, 2017.   If you wish to take your appeal to the next level, County Board of Equalization hearings will be held at the Government Center in Brighton from September 1, 2017 through November 1, 2017. 

In striving to bring the latest technology to Adams County, it is our hope that the new ON-LINE APPEAL PROCESS helped filing an appeal more convenient for our property owners. During the appeal period, 2,744 citizens took advantage of this new process. We, at the Assessor’s Office want to sincerely thank all real and personal property owners that filed an appeal.  We will diligently look at every appeal and make adjustments where appropriate.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the office at 720.523.6038.

We feel it is important that our citizens be aware of the most common deadlines that apply to the Assessors Office
They are as such;

 Appeal Real Property – June 1
 Appeal Personal Property – June 30
 Levy Special Districts – June 30
 Senior Citizens Exemption – July 15
 Disabled Veterans Exemption – July 1
 District Levy Certification – December 15
Inactive Special Districts file notice of Inactive Status – December 15                              

 We know that sometimes unforeseen circumstances happen and we will certainly take that in account but, in fairness to all our citizens, we sincerely appreciate that these deadline dates be strictly observed and followed.  

AS SOAP IS TO THE BODY, SO LAUGHTER IS TO THE SOUL!!  Please look for the new “LAUGH CORNER” that will be premiering on the Assessor website in August.  “In this world, a good time to laugh is any time you can”!

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!

LAUGH CORNER

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip.  After a good meal and a bottle of wine, they laid down for the night, and went to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend. “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”  Watson replied, “I see millions and millions of stars.” “What does that tell you?”  Watson pondered for a minute.  “Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies, and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.  What does it tell you?”  Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke.  “It tells me that someone has stolen our tent.”
