Temporary Waiver of Delinquent Interest
On March 20, 2020, Governor Polis signed an Executive Order granting County Treasurers the authority to waive delinquent interest on late tax payments. This Executive Order was extended on April 6 and will remain in effect until April 30, 2020. Based on this Executive Order, Treasurer Sue Sandstrom will waive interest as follows:
For those taxpayers who did not make a first half tax payment by the March 2 due date, and those who would now have difficulty making a single full payment by the April 30 due date, you may now make the first half payment of your tax liability by April 30, 2020, and interest will be waived. Your second half payment will then be due by June 15.
If you choose to pay in one full payment, that payment remains due by April 30. Payments made after April 30 will still be subject to delinquent interest, unless the Governor extends the Executive Order, or the State Legislature provides statutory relief.
For those taxpayers who have already made a first half payment, your second half payment is due by June 15. If not made by June 15, such payments will still be subject to delinquent interest, unless the Governor extends the Executive Order or the State Legislature provides statutory relief.
IMPORTANT: Please note that due to automation features, our online and over-the-phone payment system cannot waive interest. To take advantage of the waiver of interest on first half payments, you must mail your payment to our office or utilize the ballot box outside of the Administration Building as a drop box.
Payments remitted by mortgage companies and title agencies are not included in this waiver of first half payment interest. Interest on delinquent payments from prior years and redemption interest on tax liens are also excluded from this waiver.
Limited Payment Locations During County Closure
During the county closure, property tax payments will still be accepted. Those that wish to drop off their payments may put their payments in the Clerk and Recorder's Ballot Box outside of the Administration Building located at 5334 S. Prince St., Littleton, CO 80120. Please do not put cash in the ballot box. This is the ONLY dropbox location available during the closure.
