Senior Property Tax Exemption

Property Search   |   Subset Query   |   Sales Search   |   Assessor Home Page


In 2000, Colorado voters amended the Colorado Constitution and created a senior property tax exemption.

This program was suspended from 2003 - 2006 and again in 2009 by the General Assembly due to the negative fiscal condition of the State. The Senior Citizen Property Tax Exemption has once again been approved for tax year 2012 and subsequent years until further notification from the State. The exemption will reduce the actual value of your residential property by 50 percent up to a maximum reduction of $100,000. The state pays the tax on the exempted value. Qualified individuals must file for exemption no later than July 15, 2019. If not filed by July 15, the assessor must accept late applications through August 15. However, applicants who file after July 15 will not have appeal rights. You only need to apply for the exemption once and it remains in effect for subsequent years, as long as the property ownership and occupancy do not change. Applications are available from your county assessor.

Please refer to the Senior Property Tax Exemption Brochure for more detailed information.

 Application Options

  • Short Form – this is a simplified application form to be used if three questions can be answered “True” 
  1. As of January 1 of this year (or the year of application), I am 65 years old.
  2. I occupy the property to receive the exemption as my primary residence and have done so for at least ten consecutive years.
  3.  I am the owner of record for at least ten consecutive years prior to January 1 of this year (or the year of application.) 
  • Long Form – this is a more complicated form to be used by seniors that may still qualify even if the above three questions cannot be answered “True”.
