Governor Jared Polis on March 20, 2020 signed an Executive Order granting County Treasurers the authority to waive delinquent interest on first half property tax payments received after the due date of March 2. This Executive Order will remain in effect for 30 days until April 20, 2020.
Based on this Executive Order, Treasurer Irene Josey will waive interest as follows:
Taxpayers who have not made a first half property tax payment and expect difficulty making a full payment by April 30, now have until April 20 to make the first half property tax payment with no delinquent interest. The second half payment will remain due on June 15.
Full payments remain due April 30, and payments made after April 30 are subject to delinquent interest, unless the Governor extends the Executive Order or the State Legislature provides statutory relief.
For taxpayers who have already made a first half property tax payment, the second half payment is due June 15. Payments received after June 15 are subject to delinquent interest, unless the Governor extends the Executive Order or the State Legislature provides statutory relief.
Treasurer Josey encourages those who are able to pay their property taxes timely please do so. The timely receipt of property taxes is essential to the effective delivery of services to you by our county health department, fire districts, cities, towns and special districts and local law enforcement agencies.
Payments remitted by mortgage companies and title agencies are not included in this waiver of first half payment interest. Interest on delinquent property tax payments from prior years and redemption interest on property tax liens are also excluded from this waiver.
