There’s Still Time to Apply for Senior Exemption on Property Tax

Do you like paying taxes? I didn’t think so. It is one of the few things that nearly everyone in the country can agree on. You don’t want to pay more taxes than you need to, legally. With the end of the year approaching, what can you actually do to lower your tax liability for 2019? I have you covered! 

The deadline to apply for the Colorado Senior Homeowners Property Tax Exemption has been extended
to Aug. 15 from July 15.

The Senior Exemption is available to those who:
-Are at least 65 years of age before January 1 of the year of the application,
-Owned their home for at least 10 consecutive years,
-And occupied their home as a primary residence for at least 10 consecutive years before January

“Seniors frequently say how much they appreciate this exemption,” says Larimer County Assessor Bob
Overbeck. “I want anyone eligible to apply and not miss out on these savings.” For those who qualify for
the exemption, 50% of the first $200,000 in actual value — $100,000 — is exempted from property tax.
To apply for the exemption, or get more information, visit the Larimer County Assessor Exemption Web
Page or contact the Larimer County Assessor’s Office at 970-498-7050.
