RE: COVID-19
Sections II and III of Executive Order D 2020 012 are amended to read as follows: 

1. Replace Paragraph II.H with the following: I authorize the Public Trustees of the State of Colorado to temporarily extend the deadlines up to and including April 30, 2020 in the following provisions: § 38-38-102 (concerning the deadline for recordation of a Notice of Election and Demand for sale); § 38-38-103 (concerning the deadline for mailing a Combined Notice); § 38- 38-104 (concerning the deadline for a party to file a Notice of Intent to Cure and the time within which a Trustee must mail the notice to the note holder or its attorney, and the deadline for tendering funds to cure); § 38-38-302 (concerning the deadline to tender redemption funds); and § 38-38-501 (concerning the deadline to execute and record a confirmation deed). Any action by a Public Trustee concerning these extensions should be made available on the Public Trustee’s website, electronic mail, or automated messages.

I further authorize county treasurers to accept multiple payments from any taxpayer ahead of payment deadlines and encourage any taxpayer to make second-installment payments ahead of the June 15 deadline established in C.R.S. § 39-10-104.5(2). Any action by a Treasurer to waive delinquent interest shall be made with advance notice to any entity that imposes a mill levy within the county and shall be made available on the Treasurer’s website, electronic mail, or automated messages.

Electronic Notification and Delivery of Tax Notices

      

The Colorado State General Assembly enacted legislation in 2010 allowing County Treasurers to send electronic notification to each person whose name appears on the tax list and warrant a statement or true and accurate notice of electronic statement availability, showing the total amount of taxes payable.

A taxpayer may request to receive statements and/or notification by electronic transmission. The taxpayer shall submit along with the request an electronic address to which the treasurer may send future statements. If a taxpayer subsequently requests to cease the electronic transmission of such statements and requests to receive future statements by mail, the treasurer shall comply with the written request.

Failure of a taxpayer to receive the electronic statement shall not preclude collection by the treasurer of the amount of taxes due from and payable by the taxpayer.
