Property Tax Payment Information

Please make your payment to the Larimer County Treasurer, PO Box 2336, Fort Collins, CO 80522. To ensure accurate posting, please include the appropriate payment coupon and/or schedule number for each property you are paying taxes for.

Tax Statement Mailing

The Property Tax Statement is mailed by the end of each January, to the owner of record, as listed on the Tax Roll, as of January 1. The Tax Roll is prepared and maintained by the County Assessor.

**Failure to receive a Property Tax Statement does not exempt the taxpayer from timely payment of the taxes due.**

If you have not received a tax statement by the first week of February, you may obtain a copy of your statement online via our property tax database, emailing our office at lctreasurer@larimer.org or by calling (970) 498-7020.

Address Change

Changes of address are processed by the Larimer County Assessor's Office and they must be notified in writing containing the owner's signature. The Assessor's mailing address is PO Box 1190, Fort Collins, CO 80522. You may also use Larimer County's online address change notification page to obtain a form to complete this request.

Where Do I Make Payments?

Please make your payment to the Larimer County Treasurer, P.O. Box 2336, Fort Collins, CO 80522. For overnight payments, please mail to the 200 West Oak Street, Suite 2100, Fort Collins, CO 80521. To ensure accurate posting, please include the appropriate payment coupon and/or schedule number for each property you are paying.

You may also come to our office. We're located on the second floor of the Larimer County Courthouse, 200 West Oak St, Suite 2100, Fort Collins, CO. 80521 Office hours are Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Handicap access is located at both entrances of the Larimer County Courthouse. The Treasurer's Office is also handicap accessible.

Payments may also be made at most Larimer County banks. You must bring your tax statement with you when making payment at these locations. Banks will accept current year payments through July 31 only.

Mortgage Company Payments

Colorado Revised Statutes mandate that the Treasurer mail the Property Tax Statement to the owner of record, as their name and address are listed on the Tax Roll certified by the County Assessor. Therefore, your mortgage company does not receive a copy of the Property Tax Statement. Most mortgage companies perform their own research on the property taxes they are responsible for by your contractual agreement. If you feel your mortgage company needs a copy of your Property Tax Statement, simply send them a photocopy or contact the Treasurer's Office for an additional copy. The fee is $2.00.

If you and your mortgage company submit payment, the Treasurer will process the first payment received and return the subsequent payment to the paying party. The Treasurer does not hold or apply additional monies. For further mortgage company payment information contact the Treasurer's Office at (970) 498-7032, or via email
