Property Appeal Process

In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, for your safety and our team’s safety, the Eagle County Assessor’s Office will continue to restrict in person interactions through May. If you wish to appeal your property value or classification, please be aware that the current 2020 value is based on June 30, 2018 market data. Unless there is a change in our State Constitution or statutes we cannot accept appeals based on taxes or effects on property value due to the public health situation. As it stands now, any subsequent economic impacts of the virus will be addressed in the 2021 revaluation of all real property.

2020 Real Property Appeals

Colorado law requires a two year reassessment cycle for all property.  2020 is the second, or intervening year of the current two year cycle.  For most property, the valuation for assessment for the 2020 tax year will be the same as it was for 2019. These figures appear on your 2020 Tax Notice under "Actual Value." If for any reason we change the valuation for the 2020 tax year, we will mail a Notice of Valuation to you on May 1, 2020. The notice will describe the property you own, give the actual value for both the prior and current year, and provide an opportunity for you to present your objection to the Assessor.

The appraisal data used to establish real property value was from the 24-month period ending June 30, 2018. If data is insufficient during this time period, assessors may use data from the five-year period ending June 30, 2018.

If you receive a Notice of Valuation, study it carefully! The deadlines for appeal are statutorily driven. If you feel the value the Assessor has placed on your property is incorrect, you may wish to inspect the Assessor’s records on your property and other properties. Records on land and buildings are public information, and you have the right to examine them. You have the right to appeal your value each year. May of each year is set aside for the Assessor's Office to hear appeals on property valuation. 

The Assessor's Office will welcome appeals of the valuation of real property from May 1 until June 1, 2020. In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, the Eagle County Assessor's Office will restrict in-person interactions through May. We urge you to submit your appeal by automated online form. If you are unable to submit online, you may submit your appeal in writing via mail, fax or Eagle County dropbox.

Personal Property Appeals

Personal Property Notices of Valuation will be mailed by August 3, 2020.  The Notices of Valuation list the location, classification, and value of the property for both the prior and current years. The Notice of Valuation provides an opportunity for you to present your objection to the Assessor.

Take a look at your Notice. If you don't agree that the value is appropriate, you may want to appeal the 2020 valuation on your property.  The Assessor's Office will welcome appeals of the valuation of personal property from August 3 until August 18, 2020.  This may be done in person at the Assessor's Office or in writing via mail or fax.
