Property Tax Dates El Paso County

Every state, county has different deadlines. Surely, you don’t need to have these deadlines memorized, but it’s good to know where you can find them. So pin this page to your Pinterest Board or bookmark this page to come back to it, should you need it.

Notes: If a due date falls on a legal holiday or weekend, payments are considered timely if received on the next business day. Redemption of Taxes – Tax redemption payments must be received by the Treasurer’s Office on or before the last business day of the month.

January

Property taxes are collected in arrears. Tax statements will be mailed before the end of the month. When you receive this statement, do not pay it until you have spoken with your loan officer to make sure that this is necessary. Most likely your mortgage company has collected these property taxes all years and put in reserve, therefore the money is readily available and will be paid out of that account by the mortgage company. Understanding your Assessment.

The first half tax payment is due the last day of February.  Payment must be received by the Treasurer’s Office or bear an official United States Postal Service postmark of the last day of February. Again make sure that BEFORE you pay, your taxes are NOT paid by your lender.
