County Offices and Courts will be closed on Monday, February 15, 2016 in observance of the President's Day Holiday. The Landfill will be open. Critical services at Larimer County are not disrupted by closures.
The Assessor's office has worked to identify the impact of this flood as it relates to property assessments. We continue to have staff members from this office working in conjunction other departments and agencies to help identify damaged and destroyed structures within the flooded area. For destroyed and severely damaged properties, adjustments were figured for the 2013 tax year. These adjustments were only for properties where the structure was destroyed or damaged to the point of demolition. These adjustments impact the property tax bill that is payable in 2014 because property taxes are paid in arrears. Properties that saw less severe impact and those where the access to the property is still an issue are being reviewed for the 2014 tax year. After our analysis is done and the adjustments for this year are determined, impacted property owners will be sent a notice of valuation on or before May 1, 2014. The values on our website will be updated at that time.
Our office continues to make every effort to work with long term recovery teams and with individual property owners. We have also set up a system that allows the property owner to submit a damage report online and include any information that they feel will be helpful in determining a value for the property in its post flood condition.
Property owners with questions and concerns should contact our office directly.
