New at the Treasurer’s Office

Certified Funds are required for all delinquent tax payments beginning September 1st.

Tax payments can no longer be made over the telephone for the remainder of the year. You can still pay taxes online at www.weldtax.com with a debit or credit card. There will be a 2.45% convenience fee charged by the vendor.

If you decide to mail in a payment be sure it is a Cashier’s Check from a bank or a money order. Personal and business checks are no longer accepted.

 

Purpose

The Treasurer is charged with collecting all county property taxes, making distribution of those taxes to the various underlying authorities, and investing the difference on behalf of the County.

Property Tax Collections

Property taxes are collected one year in arrears. In 2015 the Treasurer's Office collected the 2014 taxes for a total value of $568 million on 175,000 tax bills. By June 30 each year we have generally collected about 95% of all tax dollars and 90% of all tax bills are paid. The remaining six months of the year are spent collecting the 5% of tax dollars that have not been paid. 99.9% of all taxes are collected before the end of year.

Distributions

In 2015 we distributed property taxes to about 400 underlying authorities. The school districts are by far the largest single portion of the property tax dollars at nearly 50% followed by the County at about 20%, all other authorities share the remaining amount. The Treasurer prepares monthly statements reflecting amounts collected and disbursed to all underlying authorities.

Investments

The county holds a portfolio of investments including Federal Government Agency bonds with a duration of five years or less, some local bank certificates of deposit, and money market funds all in accordance with the state statutes on public fund investments.

Other Duties

In addition to the collection of taxes, the Treasurer’s Office also performs tax deferment applications, mobile home authentications, prepares Certificates of Taxes Due, and responds to other inquiries related to taxation.

Reports of the fiscal activities of the Treasurer's Office are submitted to the County Commissioners and published semi-annually.

The Treasurer enforces collection of delinquent taxes by conducting an annual delinquent real estate property tax sale. Personal property is subject to distraint, seizure and sale of the property.

The Treasurer, an appointed position as of January 1, 2003, is also a member (currently Chairman) of the Weld County Retirement Board.
