Treasurer and Public Trustee

Delinquent property tax statements for the property tax year 2019 payable in 2020 will hit mail boxes this week. Taxpayers that submitted payment after July 27, 2020 might still receive a delinquent statement in the mail due to the printing and mailing process.

Larimer County Treasurer & Public Trustee Irene Josey reminds taxpayers they had two options when paying their property taxes. If paying in full, the deadline was April 30, 2020.  If paying in two equal installments, the first half was due March 2nd, and the second half was due June 15th.  Many property owners have an escrow account with a mortgage company which submits property tax payments on their behalf. Please note that all funds received from mortgage companies have been processed and posted at this time.

The Colorado Legislature recently passed a bill that granted County Treasurers the authority to waive delinquent interest from June 15, 2020, through September 30, 2020, for 2019 taxes payable in 2020. Taxpayers may submit payment until September 30, 2020 without penalty of delinquent interest.   Treasurer Josey encourages those who are able to pay their property taxes before the waiver ends to please do so.

Beginning October 1, 2020, interest will accrue at the statute-mandated 1% per month and be subject to advertising and distraint fees as scheduled. The Larimer County Tax Lien Sale will remain scheduled for November 19, 2020. All property taxes must be collected to meet the budgetary requirements of all certified taxing authorities. The annual tax lien sale is held to collect these unpaid taxes. 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.

Property taxes and delinquent interest collected by the county treasurer are distributed to the local taxing authorities, including cities and towns, fire districts, and health districts. 

If you have questions regarding the status of your property taxes, please call the Larimer County Treasurer’s Office at (970) 498-7020 or visit our website at
