Property Tax Payment
Colorado Revised Statutes mandate that the Treasurer mail the Property Tax Notice to the owner of record, as their name and address are listed on the Tax Roll certified by the County Assessor. Therefore, your mortgage company does not receive a copy of the Property Tax Statement. Most mortgage companies perform their own research on the property taxes they are responsible for by your contractual agreement. If you feel your mortgage company needs a copy of your Property Tax Statement, simply send them a photocopy or contact the Treasurer's Office for an additional copy. The fee is $2.00.
If you and your mortgage company submit payment, the Treasurer will process the first payment received and return the subsequent payment to the paying party. The Treasurer does not hold or apply additional monies. For further mortgage company payment information contact the Treasurer's Office at (970) 870-5555, or via email.

Dropped off in our 24-Hour Tax Payment Box
Located adjacent to the ballot drop off box located in the alleyway behind the historic, downtown Courthouse at 522 Lincoln Avenue in Steamboat Springs, CO or in the Green Tax Payment box outside the Treasurer’s Office door, Suite 22 in the historic, downtown Courthouse, clearly marked "TAX PAYMENTS."
Payments received after either options' deadline will accrue interest beginning the day following the deadlines. For example, if half of the payment due is not received by February 28, and full payment is not posted thereafter by April 30, delinquent interest will be charged on the first half which then becomes past due as of March 1. This only applies if the taxpayer pays half of the tax bill anytime before June 15. If the full payment is made after April 30, interest will begin to accrue as of May 1st and then on the first day of each subsequent month.
If your tax payment made by credit card, check or e-check is returned unpaid for any reason by your financial institution, your tax obligation will change from paid status to unpaid (outstanding), and will be subject to applicable late payment penalties and costs, if the payment is delinquent.
A $30.00 non-sufficient funds/returned payment fee is passed on to all returned payments.
