Overview

The Treasurer's Office bills, collects and distributes property taxes for the towns, schools and special districts located within Eagle County.

The amount of taxes payable annually on a property is determined by the assessment process and the total mill levies for the taxing authorities that provide public services. The County Assessor establishes the value of all property for tax purposes. The taxing authorities use the assessed value to determine their mill levies. A mill is 1/10th of a penny or $1 revenue for each $1,000 of assessed valuation.

Billing
The owner of record should receive a Property Tax Statement for the prior year’s tax by the end of January. The statement is mailed to the owner of record as their name and mailing address are listed on the Tax Roll. The Tax Roll is prepared and maintained by the County Assessor.

Failure to receive a tax statement does not exempt the taxpayer from prompt payment of the taxes due. If you have not received a tax statement by January 31st, please contact the Treasurer’s Office at 970-328-8860 and a duplicate statement will be mailed.

If you pay taxes as part of your monthly house payment, you will need to make a copy of your tax bill and send it to your mortgage company. We do not provide duplicate copies for mortgage companies. Colorado Revised Statutes mandate that the Treasurer mail the tax statement to the owner of record, as their name and address are listed on the Tax Roll certified by the Assessor.

Payment Options    

Check - Please make check payable to Eagle County Treasurer for the exact amount due. Checks must be U.S. funds and drawn on a U.S. Bank. Be sure to include your tax coupon and write your account number on your check. Be sure to include the interest if you are paying after the deadline.

                                   Mail to: Eagle County Treasurer, PO Box 479, Eagle CO 81631.

Wire Transfer - If you wish to wire transfer your tax payment please call the Eagle County Treasurer's Office at 970-328-8860 to obtain wire instructions.

Collection
All property taxes shall become due and payable on January 1 of each year for the previous year's assessment. (CRS 39-10-102) However, payments may be paid in two equal installments or in one full installment. To avoid penalty interest charges, the first half must be paid by the last day of February and the second half must be paid by June 15. If taxes are paid in one installment, payment must be made by April 30. When the tax amount is twenty-five dollars ($25) or less, the half-payment option does not apply, therefore a single payment must be received by April 30. Payments bearing U.S. postmarks reflective of these dates are acceptable. If your payment is delinquent, penalty interest is added to the tax amount.

Only HALF or FULL payments will be accepted. Partial payments are not acceptable. All payments must be made in U.S Funds and drawn on a U.S. Bank.

If paid in installments, interest charges on the first half begins March 1 and interest on the second half beginning June 16. If paying full, interest charges begin May 1. Only FULL first half, second half or full payments can be accepted. No partial payments can be accepted.

Interest must be included with payment. Calculate as follows: 

Payment Month 1st Half 2nd Half Full Payment

Less than $25

March 1% --- --- ---
April 2% --- --- ---
May 3% --- 1% 1%
June 1-15 4% --- 2% 2%
June 16-30 4% 1% 2% 2%
July 5% 2% 3% 3%
