Board of Equalization


In Adams County, the Board of County Commissioners sits as the Board of Equalization (BOE). The mission of the BOE is to assure just and equalized property tax assessments.

The legislature requires that all property in the state of Colorado be revalued by county assessors in every odd-numbered year. Actual value is determined after careful analysis of data derived from the marketplace.

Appealing a Property Tax Valuation / Classification

If a taxpayer disagrees with the current year actual value or the classification determined for the property, they may file a protest with the Adams County Assessor's Office at 720.523.6038.

A taxpayer may then choose to appeal the decision of the Assessor's Office to the BOE. In order to process appeals within the state's statutory time limits, the Board of County Commissioners appoints hearing officers to preside over hearings and make recommendations to the BOE.
