I. The Unjust Foundation of Tax Valuations:

a. Arbitrary County Perceptions and Selective Comparable Sales: The county’s whimsical perception of a property’s value as of January 1, 2023, forms the basis of tax valuations. These valuations are determined using cherry-picked comparable sales within a two-year period, from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2022. Astonishingly, this conveniently excludes the six-month slump following rapid interest rate hikes—the aftermath of the strongest two years in Denver metro area’s real estate history.

b. Soaring Home Values Disregarded: While the county conveniently capitalizes on the skyrocketing home values since the summer of 2020, homeowners are left astounded by the exorbitant sale prices their properties could command in the current market. Yet, the Assessor’s valuation of their homes on January 1, 2023, defies logic and fails to account for more reasonable comparable sales that would justify a lower valuation for tax purposes.

II. Fighting Back: Exercising Your Right to Appeal:

a. Homeowner’s Power to Challenge: It’s crucial to remember that homeowners possess the right to challenge the Assessor’s valuation of their property. Taking action is as simple as completing an online form provided by your county. Don’t let the deadline, June 8, 2023, slip away—stand up for your rights!

b. Asserting Overvaluation with Solid Evidence: In your appeal, make it clear that you believe the Assessor’s valuation is outrageously inflated. Provide compelling evidence by citing specific sales that occurred between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2022—sales conveniently overlooked by the Assessor. Unveil the truth and demand a fair and just valuation for tax purposes.

III. Seeking Relief: The Battle in the Legislature:

a. A Glimmer of Hope: Fortunately, a bill is currently making its way through the Colorado legislature, offering homeowners a glimmer of hope in the face of relentless property valuation increases. This bill aims to provide much-needed relief from the burden placed upon homeowners. However, it’s important to recognize that the details of this legislation are yet to be finalized, leaving its passage, signing, and transformation into law uncertain.
