Actual Value x Assessment Rate = Assessed Value x Mill Levy = Taxes Due
The assessment date is January 1 of every year. Property is valued based on its condition as of the assessment date.
Mill levies are set by the taxing authorities in which your property is located. The property tax revenues support the schools, fire protection, roads, special districts and other local services in your specific area. The assessor reports the total assessed value to the taxing authorities in December each year so an accurate mill levy can be set. A property located in a tax area is taxed by that area's total net mill levy. You can find the Mill Levies by Tax Area/District Report here.
The taxing authorities are school boards, special districts, etc. in the area your property is located. They hold annual public budget hearings to determine the funds needed for next year's operations, which will determine the mill levy. Most hearings are in the fall. Being present at the budget hearings makes you more involved and informed about the cost and quality of services provided. Click here for Tax Authority Contact Info.
Notice of Valuations for real property are mailed out every reappraisal (odd) year no later than May 1. The appeal form is included with the NOV. If you wish to appeal your value, provide comparable sales (not listings) of similar homes in your area that have occurred during the statutory sales period. For tax years 2020 & 2021, the sales period is from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2020. Email or mail the signed form with sales documentation to the assessor by June 1.
NOVs are only mailed out in intervening (even) years when there has been a change in value to the property due to things like finished basements, additions, etc. Click here if you need an appeal form.
Please contact the Treasurer's office for all payment-related questions at 303-464-5810 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Researching to determine your property's mineral rights is not a function of the assessor's office but we can offer a general direction from where to begin your search. Mineral rights may or may not appear on your deed. Deeds are recorded for public record at the Clerk & Recorder’s Office. Since Broomfield has only been a county since 2001, our records are not complete so you may need to contact the legacy county (the county your property was located in before 2001 - Boulder, Weld, Jefferson or Adams).
Due to the complexity of mineral rights research, you may need to hire a real estate attorney or a title company to assist you.
Property lines can only be determined by a licensed surveyor. The City and County of Broomfield does not offer this service.
If your property is within a platted subdivision, you may view the recorded plats from our GIS department's Subdivision Plat Maps page. Parcel maps can be viewed through our Aerial Parcel Search (also found on the left side of our page, 3rd header down).
