Hide Featured Image

Enclosed is a sample public notice along with sample media releases for 2024. The notice and media releases may be used as written by filling in the blanks with the appropriate information, or they may be customized to meet your needs. Adjustments have been made for the 2024 statutory dates that fall on a weekend or holiday. The dates for real property are set assuming that the Real Property Notices of Valuation will be mailed on Wednesday, May 1, 2024. If the notices are mailed earlier than May 1, the date real property protests begin must be adjusted accordingly. Section 39-5-122, C.R.S., states that the assessor will sit to hear real property protests beginning on the first working day after Notices of Valuation are mailed.

All counties have the option to use the alternate protest and appeal procedures. The alternate protest and appeal procedures must be requested by the assessor and approved by the governing body of the county on or before May 1 of each year pursuant to § 39-5-122.7(1), C.R.S. The alternate protest and appeal procedures extend the time period assessors have to respond to protests. For real property, the deadline is extended from the last regular working day in June to August 15. For personal property, the deadline is extended from July 10 to August 15. If a county elects to use the alternate protest and appeal procedures, the dates shown in the Real Property Taxpayer Remedies and Personal Property Taxpayer Remedies media releases must be modified accordingly. Additional information concerning alternate protest period NOVs, is available in the ARL, Volume 2, Chapter 9. If your county is adopting the alternate protest period, please ensure that you inform Thomas Young, thomas.young@state.co.us, at the Division of Property Taxation to ensure you are using the correct deadlines for submitting the county’s abstract files.
