Can You Appeal Your Property Valuation in Northern Colorado?
If you are a homeowner in Northern Colorado, you might be in for another price shock when you get your property valuation car in the mail. We got ours this week and I cannot believe that our property value went up over $90,000 in two years. Sorry Colorado, I just don't buy it.
In March, homeowners got wind of the price increases coming on their properties. Those increases could mean hundreds and even thousands of dollars in additional taxes every year on properties in Colorado.
Why are Property Taxes Going Up So Much in Colorado?
In the 2020 elections, Colorado voters repealed the Gallagher Amendment with 57 percent approval. The Gallagher Amendment was an act that put limits on how much property taxes could increase. Now that the Gallagher Amendment has been repealed, we're seeing the results.
Couple the repeal of the Gallagher Amendment with the absolutely bonkers real estate market starting in 2020 feels like a recipe for disaster when it comes to property taxes rates.
