Certificates of Authenticity
We provide certificates of authenticity for the transfer of ownership of mobile homes and moving permits for mobile homes.
Tax notices are mailed to the last known address during the third week in January (approximately). Taxes are collected for the previous year, i.e. 2009 tax is payable in 2010. Delinquent notices go out the first week in July. Taxes are payable in one lump sum due April 30 or in two equal installments due February 28 and June 15. If payment deadlines are not met, interest is charged at the rate of 1% per month. (Per Colorado revised Statutes). Unpaid balances as of September 30 are subject to advertising in the Silver World Newspaper, the cost of which is payable with the delinquent tax and interest. Unpaid amounts at the time of the annual tax lien sale in December will be subject to that sale. There is a three year redemption period for the owner from the date of the sale. If the tax has not been paid three years from the date of the sale, the certificate holder can then apply for a treasurer's deed.
Your tax notice should be mailed to you even if you escrow taxes with your lender. In most cases they contact us directly for tax amounts for their customers.
Failure to receive a tax statement does not exempt the taxpayer from prompt payment of the taxes due. If you have not received a tax statement by February 7th, please contact the Treasurer's Office at 970-944-2225 and a duplicate statement will be mailed.
Questions regarding the calculation of your tax or the value placed on your property should be directed to the Hinsdale County Assessor, 970-944-2225
