DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. – Average home values in Douglas County have gone up more than 20 percent in two years….
The new value is based on a study of all comparable sales between 2012 and 2014, according the Douglas County Assessor’s Office.
Residential property owners in Douglas County should have already received a postcard in the mail highlighting the new re-appraised value of their home.
The new value will be used when calculating property taxes for the tax years of 2016 and 2017, the assessor says.
If you disagree with the assessed value of your home or land, you can protest online, in writing (submitted to Office of the Assessor, 301 Wilcox St., Castle Rock, CO, 80104) or in person at the aforementioned address. All appeals, in compliance with state statute, must be filed by June 1.
If you have not received a postcard with your re-appraised value, please visit www.douglas.co.us/assessor where you can find your new appraised and assessed values, along with your current tax rate by entering your last name and address into the form on top of the page.
