What year am I paying taxes for?
In Colorado, tax payments are made in arrears (2021 taxes are due in 2022)
I didn’t own the property all of 2017, am I responsible for the full amount?
Yes. In Colorado, property taxes follow the property and not the owner. In addition, we collect in arrears; so in order to colllect on the property, we collect on the current owner who has a vested interest in that property. Your title company will work to calculate a prorated amount that is either pre-paid to the Treasurer or credited to the new owner.
