Colorado law requires a two-year assessment cycle for all taxable real property. For tax years 2021 and 2022, the assessor is required to appraise all real property as of a June 30, 2020 level of value. Notices of Valuation were sent to all real property owners on May 3, 2021 for the biennial reassessment. This Notice of Value reports the change in your property's value or classification from the prior year and informs you of your rights to appeal per Colorado statutes.

Colorado law requires the county assessor to hear objections to real property classifications and valuations from May 1 thru June 1. You can file an appeal to the assessor’s office by submitting your Notice of Value appeal form via email, letter, fax, or presented in person to our office. To file a timely appeal, objections to the valuation or classification of real property must be postmarked or received no later than June 1, 2020. The assessor must make a decision concerning all filed appeals and mail a written Notice of Determination by June 30, 2021.
We will be glad to talk with you and explain or provide the appraisal analysis that was used to determine your property’s value. This appeal period provides an opportunity for taxpayers to inform the assessor of errors in classification, property description, or other discrepancies that may result in a reduction in value or a change in classification. Property values, building characteristics, and sales reports can also be queried by going to the county’s web site 'Public Search' and the “Assessor's Property Search” link at www.co.routt.co.us
Appeal forms are located on your Notice of Value and available for download from your property account on the 'Property Search' page under 'Documents' within your account.
