Property Tax Exemption Information & Forms


When the state of Colorado's budget allows, 50% of the first $200,000 of actual value of a qualified applicant's primary residence is exempted.  For example, if your home was valued at $200,000, the exemption would reduce the taxable value to $100,000.

Regardless of whether the exemption is funded or not, your county assessor will continue to process new applications. The funding of the Senior Citizen Property Tax Exemption does not affect the Disabled Veteran Exemption. The Broomfield Assessor will continue to process new applications for the Senior Homestead Exemption and those who qualify for the first time are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is July 15.
