With the 2018 tax reform finalizing, you may want to prepay your property taxes to take advantage of this deduction before it is limited to $10,000 between state and property taxes on your federal itemized deductions.
We spoke with the City and County of Denver to find out more information on prepaying your property taxes.
It must be in person or mailed NO ONLINE PAYMENTS. The county does not yet know the exact amount that will be owed because the mill levy’s haven’t been issued. They advise paying what was owed last year and the taxpayer will either get a refund or owe the difference of what was paid once the levy has been issued sometime in January. When prepaying, the taxpayer must have available their parcel number. Just FYI, if there is a current balance due, that balance must be paid off before the county will allow prepayment.
In person payments are done at: the City and County of Denver – Treasury Division Taxpayer Services which is located in the Wellington Webb Building, 201 W. Colfax Ave., Department 1009. Denver, CO 80202.
Mail in payments are to be sent to: City and County of Denver, Department of Finance, Treasury Division. P.O. Box 17420, Denver, CO 80217-0420
We believe other Colorado counties will be operating very similarly for prepaid real estate taxes.
