Chaffee County Assessor Rick Roberts


For tax years 2023 and 2024, the County Assessor is required by law to appraise all real property at a June 30, 2022 level of value. This is statutory requirement and unless there is a change in our State Statutes we have no alternative but to use this time frame.

If there is no increase in value, you will still be able to see your value on our website and appeal your value.  To see your value, please look up your property in the "Assessor Record Search" on the left of this screen.  You can appeal your property's assessed value, but not your tax amount. Upon reviewing your estimated tax, you'll likely notice an increase. This is due to the State legislature not yet determining the assessment rate for residential properties or applying any discounts as they did in 2023. As a result, we're uncertain about your 2024 tax amount.

To see the official back of the Notice of Value, please click HERE.

Colorado law requires the County Assessor to hear objections to real property classifications and valuations beginning May 1, 2024. Objections to the valuation or classification of real property must be filed on-line, or postmarked, delivered or presented in person to the County Assessor no later than June 10, 2024 at 5:30pm.

Personal Property Tax Declarations

    Taxpayer Filing Requirements for Certain Taxable Property 
                                            (Due April 15, 2024)                                 

All persons owning, possessing, or controlling taxable personal property with a  total actual value greater than $52,000 (per owner, per county) on January 1, 2024, are required to report the personal property to the assessor by April 15, 2024. Personal Property Declaration Schedules have been mailed to every person, business, or company known to own, possess, or control taxable personal property in the county. Non-receipt of a declaration schedule DOES NOT excuse taxpayers from declaring taxable personal property to the assessor. If you have not received a declaration schedule and own personal property with a value greater than $52,000, contact the assessor at 719-539-4016. 

All personal property with a total actual value in excess of $52,000 (per owner, per county) is taxable unless specifically exempt by law. 

Taxable personal property includes: 

      •   All residential household furnishings used to produce income

      •   Equipment, furniture, and machinery used by commercial, industrial, and natural resource operations

      •   Property used in an agribusiness that does not qualify as agricultural pursuant to § 39-1-102(1.6)(a), C.R.S.

      •   Expensed assets with a life greater than one year

      •   Fully depreciated assets still in use

      •   Personal property in storage that is subject to IRS depreciation

      •   Leasehold improvements

Equipment that is licensed as a motor vehicle (SMM plate or Z-Tab) is not reported on the Personal Property Declaration Schedule.

Completed declaration schedules are due April 15, 2024. You may extend the deadline if, prior to April 15, the assessor receives your written request for an extension along with $20 for a 10-day extension, or $40 for a 20-day extension. If you do not meet the April 15 deadline and do not request an extension, a penalty in the amount of $50 or 15% of the taxes due (whichever is less) will be applied to your account.

If you fail to file a declaration schedule, the assessor will establish a taxable value based on the "best information available" and add a penalty of up to 25% of assessed value for any omitted property that is subsequently discovered.

Declarations can be mailed to:
Chaffee County Assessor's Office
P.O. Box 699
Salida, CO  81201
