Senior Citizen Property Tax Exemption

Referendum A

In the November 2000 election, Colorado voters passed a Property Tax Exemption for seniors, known as Referendum A. Qualifying seniors will see 50 percent of the first $200,000 of actual value of their primary residence exempted from property tax. 

Qualifying Members

To qualify, at least one owner of a home must be 65 years or older as of Jan. 1 and must have occupied the home as a primary residence for at least 10 consecutive years prior to Jan. 1 of the year he/she applies.

Completed applications should be submitted on or before July 15 of the year for which exemption is requested. The application window will re-open after January 1.
