Important Information Regarding Property Tax Payments
On 04/06/2020, Governor Polis granted further authority to the County Treasurers to waive interest on the first half real property tax payment (which was due 03/02/2020), so long as the taxpayer pays that first half on or before 04/30/2020. (A prior Executive Order granted authority to the Treasurer to waive interest through 04/20/2020). The language of the current Executive Order follows (and a hyperlink to the full Executive Order is here):
Excerpt from Governor Polis’ 04/06/2020 Order:
2. Replace Paragraph II.I (of the 03/21/2020 Executive Order) with the following:
I authorize the County Treasurers of the State of Colorado to take action to suspend or waive delinquent interest through April 30, 2020 that may accrue pursuant to the provisions of C.R.S. § 39-10-104.5 as a result of delinquent tax payments. I further authorize county treasurers to accept multiple payments from any taxpayer ahead of payment deadlines and encourage any taxpayer to make second-installment payments ahead of the June 15 deadline established in C.R.S. § 39-10-104.5(2). Any action by a Treasurer to waive delinquent interest shall be made with advance notice to any entity that imposes a mill levy within the county and shall be made available on the Treasurer’s website, electronic mail, or automated messages. This Executive Order does not authorize County Treasurers to waive delinquent interest pursuant to the provisions of C.R.S. § 39-10-104.5 that accrues after April 30, 2020.
(Emphasis in bold is added here by the Treasurer).
Memorial Day Weekend and Adams County Schedule Change
Happy Friday and long Memorial Weekend. As I think deeply today of my father who was a “lifer” in the nation’s military, who was deployed to Korea, Viet Nam, and the Asian theatre (locations too numerous to identify here!), I’m eternally grateful to him and all other persons who have served this Country so fully – in times past and through this COVID-19 time.
Our county buildings are preparing for reopening on June 2 – about a week away – and it’s important to remember that Staying Safe and Staying Home are still paramount for you and for our staff.
The Treasury will still be staffed at essential personnel only, and the building management will require that, IF you must come in, you will be masked and gloved. We do ask that you not come to the Treasury without calling our office first to get an appointment – 720.523.6160.
Please enjoy your long weekend, your remembrance and honor to those who have served this Country so fully, and be safe and healthy – mask up for you and your loved ones!
We are working
Many people have called assuming we’re not working, because our building is closed. We are working, and all payments are being processed each day that we receive them from the USPS. Please pay with a check by mailing it (with your coupon, if possible), or go to adcotax.com to pay online, or you can drop it off at the building in our drop box or the ballot boxes listed on this site. We are working to keep Adams County operating smoothly through this pandemic. Thank you!
To ensure public and employee safety, many Adams County offices are closed through Monday June 1, and will reopen on Tuesday, June 2.
