Arapahoe County sending property tax statements

County taxpayers will be receiving postcards and tax statements 

Arapahoe County Treasurer Michael Westerberg wants Arapahoe County property owners to be on the lookout for their 2022 tax statements, which are being mailed this month. He also wants to clarify who receives the information. 

Many property owners will receive a summary postcard instead of a full tax statement. This summary postcard is for property owner’s information only and no action need be taken, unless their lender is no longer paying property taxes on their behalf. The County mails the postcard to property owners whose lender submitted payment for their 2021 taxes in 2022. In other words, the property owner’s mortgage company, bank, etc. pays the property taxes due on the property owner’s behalf. Every other property owner will receive a full paper statement, the balance of which will need to be paid by the due dates listed on the paper statement 

“Property owners will either receive a tax statement, or a post card if their second installment was paid by a lender through their escrow account,” Westerberg said. “The County began mailing postcards instead of full tax statements a few years ago to help save the County—and taxpayers—money.” 

The postcard will contain most of the basic information from the tax statement, including the total amount of tax on the property and a breakdown of the taxes by taxing districts. This practice saves money by reducing paper, printing and postage costs.

Taxpayers who are unsure who is responsible for paying their taxes—themselves or their mortgage company—are encouraged to contact their mortgage company. Those who receive a postcard but still wish to have a complete statement, can view, or print their statement on the County’s website in early February, or have a statement mailed to them by calling the Treasurer’s office. 

This year’s tax statements and postcards are scheduled to be mailed at the end of January. Property tax due dates are as follows: 

  • If the tax amount is less than $25, you must pay the full amount no later than May 1.
  • If the tax amount is more than $25, you may make two payments. First half due no later than Feb. 28, second half due June 15.
  • Total amount is due no later than May 1.

Questions should be directed to the Treasurer’s office via the County website, email, or by calling 303-795-4550.
