Larimer County Treasurer Myrna Rodenberger said Jan. 18 that the mailing of the 2012 tax statements is complete. Nearly 150,000 tax notices have been mailed, which include 138,810 real property; 5,347 personal property; 5,597 mobile home and 227 state assessed tax bills. Rodenberger also said payment of these taxes will produce over $368 million for taxing authorities throughout Larimer County, $7 million more from the 2011 payable in 2012 collection process.
These tax statements are for the taxable year 2012, and became due Jan. 1, 2013. However, in accordance with Colorado State Statutes, the taxpayer has the option of paying the full amount of taxes in a single payment no later than April 30, or payment can be made in two equal installments. The first installment must be paid no later than Feb. 28, with the second installment to be paid no later than June 17. Because the statutory June 15 deadline falls on a Saturday, payments will be accepted as current through June 17. Taxpayers using the half-payment option are reminded to file their 2nd half payment coupon in a convenient place for June remittance, as a second half notice will not be mailed.
Mail payments to Larimer County Treasurer, P.O. Box 2336, Fort Collins, CO 80522. To ensure proper credit, please reference your schedule number on your check.
Rodenberger reminds all taxpayers that failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt the taxpayer from his or her obligation to pay taxes and encourages any property owners that have not received a tax notice by the end of January, to call the Larimer County Treasurer’s Office at 970-498-7020.
