Property tax notices have been mailed to La Plata County property owners, and should be received by owners before the end of January.
The notices were mailed to the address on file with the assessor. If a tax notice is not received, visit bit.ly/3sqzhit to print a copy, or call 382-6352 to obtain one.
Most residential homeowners have their property taxes paid by their mortgage or escrow company. These notices are for personal records.
People who do not receive a notice are still responsible for paying taxes. Taxes may be paid in two half-payments, due March 1 and June 15, or in one full payment due April 30. Interest accrues on taxes if not paid by the deadlines. The interest schedule is printed on the back of the tax notice.
If an individual and an escrow company both pay taxes, the person or entity who paid second will be refunded. Residents should check with their mortgage company if they received a refund. Those who pay by check, should review their bank statement to ensure a payment has been processed and cleared the bank. If it has not, residents should assume taxes have not been paid.
Paying online is the best way to pay taxes. Assistance can also be offered over the phone at 382-6352.
