Disabled veterans and seniors who qualify can now apply for the Colorado Senior Homeowners Property Tax Exemption and the Disabled Veteran Property Tax Exemption.

The deadline to apply for the Disabled Veteran Property Tax Exemption is July 1, 2022, while the deadline for the Colorado Senior Property Tax Exemption is July 15.

"Seniors frequently say how much they appreciate this exemption,” said Larimer County Assessor Bob Overbeck.  “I want anyone eligible to apply and not miss out on these savings."  Last year, the Colorado Legislature funded the two programs. For those who qualify for the exemptions, 50% of the first $200,000 in actual value --- $100,000 --- of the primary residence is exempted from property tax.

Larimer County administers and accepts the Senior Exemption but does not approve them. The Veteran Exemption must be submitted to the Colorado Department of Military and Veteran Affairs. To apply for either exemption or get more information, visit the Larimer County Assessor Exemption web page or contact the Larimer County Assessor’s Office at 970-498-7050.

Once an exemption is filed and approved it remains in effect unless a disqualifying event occurs.

The Senior Exemption is available to those who:

  • Are at least 65 years of age before January 1 of the year of application,
  • Owned their home for at least 10 consecutive years, before January 1,
  • Occupied their home as a primary residence for at least 10 consecutive years before January 1.

 

The Veteran Exemption is available to those who:

  • Sustained a service-connected disability while serving on active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States,
  • Were honorably discharged, and owned and occupied the property before January 1 and,
  • Were rated by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs as one hundred percent “permanent and total” disabled. VA unemployability awards do not meet the requirement for determining an applicant’s eligibility.

The two exemptions were funded for 2021 and are payable for 2022 from the State of Colorado. Typical recipients can save hundreds of dollars, with 19,000 seniors and almost 300 disabled veterans receiving this tax credit in Larimer County. The Senior Exemption is also known as the Homestead Exemption, approved by Colorado voters in 2000.
