Colorado Property Tax Appeals

Property taxes are on the rise in Colorado, and many residents are looking for ways to appeal their property tax assessments. If you own real property, it is essential to understand the process of review and appeal, known as "taxpayers' administrative remedies."

In Colorado, taxpayers have the right to request a review of their real property valuations. To initiate this process, you need to submit a written request to the assessor. The assessor is then required by law to provide information on the methods used to value your real property.

It is crucial to remember that the responsibility for initiating and working through the administrative remedies lies with the taxpayer. To ensure you receive the statutory due process rights, it is essential to follow the necessary steps in a timely manner.

The administrative remedies provide a structured process for both the assessor and the taxpayer. By adhering to these steps, you can ensure that your appeal is properly reviewed and considered. This allows for a fair assessment of your real property and ensures that your rights are protected.

Appealing your property tax assessment can be a complex process, and it is advisable to seek professional advice if you are unsure about the steps involved. Consulting with a lawyer or tax professional can provide valuable guidance and help you navigate the administrative remedies effectively. Remember, it is your right as a taxpayer to have your property assessed accurately, and the administrative remedies provide the framework to exercise that right.
