The receipt of property taxes on time is vital to Larimer County residents’ effective delivery of services by the county’s health department, fire districts, cities, towns, special districts, and local law enforcement agencies. The Larimer County Tax Lien Sale is currently scheduled to take place on Thursday, November 19. It will be held to collect unpaid taxes to meet the budgetary requirements of all certified taxing authorities.

Cash or certified funds are required for payment as of Thursday, October 1, with payments able to be mailed to Larimer County Treasurer at P.O. Box 2336, Fort Collins, CO 80522. Those who make payments must reference their schedule number on their check and include their payment coupon to ensure proper credit.
