Boulder County Assessor to mail real property Notices of Value on May 1

Property owners will receive their biennial Notice of Value from the Assessor’s Office in May. The appeal period runs from May 1 to June 1.

Boulder County, Colo. - The Boulder County Assessor’s Office will send more than 120,000 notices of value to property owners on Saturday May 1.

Every odd year, county assessors in Colorado are required to reassess properties within their jurisdiction and determine the market value for each property as of June 30 of the prior year. Therefore, this year’s reappraisal cycle is based on market values as of June 30, 2020.

Overall in Boulder County, there has been a positive change in values for residential properties. The median percent increases for residential type properties in this appraisal period is 11%.
