Property Values lagging behind Economic Slump

Uncategorized

Colorado is different than many states on how Colorado property values are assessed. The assessments are done on a two year cycle, so the value we receive in May 11 will be based on sales from 1/1/09 to 6/30/10, the current taxes we are paying are last years taxes based on 08 to 6/09 sales. Many areas in Colorado did not see substantial property declines until late 09 and 2010 so therefore there has likely not been much impact on the tax bill for this cycle.
