Each year the county commissioners, city and town councils, school boards, and the boards of special districts are required by law to hold public hearings to determine their operating budgets, and the number of dollars that will be required from taxpayers. Public notice of such hearings is required.
After the taxing body has determined its tax requirements, it divides that amount by the assessed value of taxable property as determined by the Assessor. The result is called the mill levy.
A mill is a $1 revenue for each $1,000 of assessed valuation.
Ad valorem taxes means according to value.
For the 2015-2016 appraisals, the actual value assigned to vacant land, residential and commercial properties is based on sales and other market data from January 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014. This data gathering period, called the base period, is prescribed by Colorado statutes. However, if an insufficient number of comparable sales occurred during that timeframe, the assessor is authorized to analyze sales that occurred up to five years preceding June 30, 2014. All sales or market data is adjusted for time to the June 30, 2014 appraisal date.
We analyze all sales which occur in the county to determine the valuations.
For commercial and industrial properties, we also use cost and income information to help estimate the values.
Changes in the economic data after the June 30, 2014 appraisal date cannot be considered until the next general reappraisal.
For 2016, property values will not change from 2015 unless there have been changes to the property, such as new construction or additions, or unless there has been a change in the use of the land.
The assessment rate, which is used to calculate the assessed value, is determined by the Colorado Constitution and statutes. For 2015-2016 the assessment rates are as follows:
Vacant Land: 29%
Agricultural Residence: *7.96%
Personal Property: 29%
Mobile Homes: *7.96% (if used as a residence)
Oil & Gas: 87.5 % of production value if primary well - 75% of production value if secondary well
Note: residential property must have a residence present
*Only the residential assessment rate may be adjusted by the Colorado Legislature. The residential rate is set every two years, during the year of reappraisal.
The following formula is used to calculate the amount of taxes due:
Actual Value X Assessment Rate X Mill levy = Property Taxes Due
The actual value of each property in Weld County is estimated by the Assessor’s Office.
The mill levies are set each year by the taxing authorities that benefit from the taxes:
The districts, which levy taxes on your property, are listed on your tax bill.

The Assessor’s Office is required to appraise all real estate in Weld County. To conduct a fair and accurate appraisal, an onsite review of your property may be needed. This review may include measurements of the exterior and/or inspection of the characteristics of the interior (for example, counting the number of bedrooms and bathrooms or inspecting basement finishes and remodels).
