Protesting Your Property Value

Beginning in 2013, Denver adopted the Pilot Alternate Valuation Protest Procedure established by § 39-5-122.8, C.R.S. All valuation, classification and tax disputes are now heard before the Denver Board of County Commissioners (BoCC). Protests differ from abatements. A taxpayer may file either one but not both for the same tax year.

The deadline has passed to file a 2013 protest. However, a 2013 Petition for Abatement or Refund of Taxes may be filed until January 1, 2016.

Abatement petitions for tax years 2012 and 2013 may filed with the BoCC now. 

A writeable PDF Abatement Petition along with Instructions may be found under the "Forms" and "Abatement or Refund of Taxes" topic on the left side of the Assessor's Welcome Page.
