Property tax statements have arrived

Arapahoe County has begun mailing 2019 tax statements to all property owners. Residents should receive their statements by February 1.

“The Arapahoe County Treasurer’s Office serves as the single point of property tax collection for more than 400 different taxing districts throughout the County,” Treasurer Sue Sandstrom said. “Only 15 percent of property taxes collected by the County are retained. These funds help provide services such as public safety and road maintenance; the remaining funds go to school districts, fire protection, libraries, sewer and water services, municipalities, and other taxing districts.”

Residents who pay their taxes in one payment must remit the full amount by April 30, 2020. For those who pay their taxes in two half payments, the first half amount is due March 2, 2020, and the second half is due June 15, 2020. The Treasurer’s Office accepts checks, cash, and credit and debit card payments, although some electronic servicing fees may apply.

Please note: All residents will receive only one tax notice.

Arapahoe county offers a variety of payment options for residents:

  • To pay by mail, send payment to: Arapahoe County Treasurer’s Office, PO Box 571, Littleton, CO 80160-0571
  • To pay in person, visit the Arapahoe County Treasurer’s Office, 5334 S. Prince Street, Littleton, CO.
  • To pay via secure drop boxes (cash is not accepted at these locations), visit:
    • Clerk & Recorder’s Office, 538 N Highway 36, Byers
    • Clerk & Recorder’s Office, Lima Plaza, 6954 S. Lima Street, Centennial
    • Clerk & Recorder’s Office, City Center Market Place Center, 490 S. Chambers Road, Aurora

Homeowners with mortgages should contact their lender’s customer service department to confirm payment responsibility prior to remitting payment to the County. Homeowners who recently paid off a mortgage should contact the Treasurer’s Office as soon as possible to ensure that they begin receiving tax statements.

Property owners age 65 or older who have lived in their home for 10 or more years, as well as fully disabled veterans, may qualify for a property tax exemption. Active military members of the National Guard or Reserves, as well as adults age 65 or older, also may qualify for a tax deferral.

For more information, visit or call 303-795-4550.
