The Public Trustee is obligated to follow Colorado State Statutes in the functions of the office.
Tax notices are mailed to the last known address during the third week in January (approximately). Taxes are collected for the previous year, i.e. 2020 tax is payable in 2021. Delinquent notices go out the first week in July.
Taxes are payable in one lump sum due April 30 or in two equal installments due February 28 and June 15. If payment deadlines are not met, interest is charged at the rate of 1% per month. (Per C.R.S 30-1-102).
Unpaid balances as of September 30 are subject to advertising in the Mineral County Miner, the cost of which is payable with the delinquent tax and interest. Unpaid amounts at the time of the annual tax lien sale in November will be subject to that sale. There is a three year redemption period for the owner from the date of the sale.
Acceptable forms of payment to the Treasurer are cash, checks, cashier’s check, money orders and credit cards. Any checks returned as insufficient will be assessed a $35.00 NSF.
