PUBLIC NOTICE

Personal Property

Unless specifically exempt by law, all persons owning, possessing, or controlling taxable business personal property with a total actual value greater than $7,400 (per business, per county) are required to report the personal property to the county assessor by April 16,2018. Personal Property Declaration Schedules have been mailed to every business, or company known to own, possess, or control taxable personal property in the county. Non-receipt of a Declaration Schedule DOES NOT excuse taxpayers from declaring taxable business personal property to the assessor. Licensed equipment that has a SMM tag or Z-Tab is not required to complete a Personal Property Declaration Schedule. If you have not received a Declaration Schedule and own business personal property in Rio Blanco County, please contact the Rio Blanco County Assessor’s office at 970-878-9410.

Completed Declaration Schedules are due April 16, 2018. If you fail to file a Declaration Schedule, the assessor will establish a taxable value based on “best information available” and add a penalty of up to 25% of the valuation for the assessment of omitted property that is subsequently discovered.

Colorado law requires the county assessor to begin hearing objections to personal property valuations no later than June 15, 2018. Objections to personal property valuations must be postmarked, delivered, or presented in person to the Rio Blanco County Assessor’s office no later than June 29, 2018. If you have questions concerning your Notice of Valuation(s), please contact the Rio Blanco County Assessor’s office at 970-878-9410.

Real Property

Colorado law, C.R.S. 39-1-104(10.2), currently requires a two-year reassessment cycle for all real property in the state of Colorado with year 2018 being an intervening year. The 2018 Notices of Valuation (NOV) will be sent only to property owners who had a change in valuation from last year. Changes in value may be attributed to new construction, demolished property, etc. Notices of Valuation will be send on or around May 1, 2018. The NOV describes the property you own, gives the actual (or market) value for the prior and current years and describes the process to present objections to the assessor. If a property owner does not receive a Notice of Valuation (no change in value from last year), please check the “Actual Value” on the 2017 Property Tax Notice you received in January 2018 from the Rio Blanco County Treasurer. The Rio Blanco County Assessor will hear objections to real property classifications and 2018 valuations beginning no later than May 1, 2018. Objections to the valuation or classification of real property must be postmarked, delivered, or presented in person to the Rio Blanco County Assessor no later than June 1, 2018. If you have questions concerning your Notice of Valuation(s), please contact the Rio Blanco County Assessor’s office at 970-878-9410.
