The Office of the Treasurer is responsible for the collection and distribution of property taxes in compliance with Colorado Statutes.

The Treasurer serves as the banker and investment officer for all County funds. Interest earnings provide an additional source of revenue for the County and its various agencies.

The collection of unpaid property taxes and special assessments is the responsibility of the Treasurer.

Real property and manufactured home unpaid taxes are enforced through the annual tax lien sale with the Treasurer becoming the agent through which the lien is paid.

Personal property tax enforcement is accomplished by seizing and selling the property when necessary.
