Jerry DiTullio

Treasurer/Public Trustee
Jefferson County, Colorado

Moving Forward Together!

Hello JeffCo,

In the private sector, businesses must protect their customer base. In the public sector, government must protect its taxpayer base. In both scenarios, the base is PEOPLE. As your Jefferson County Treasurer, I have always, and will always, protect and support our County tax base, YOU – the taxpayer.

As you know, I was elected Jefferson County Treasurer in the November 2018 election, and re-elected in the November 2022 election. Since taking office, my staff and I have been making great strides in improving several areas of the JeffCo Treasurer’s Office. Due to the 2020-22 pandemic, it has taken resiliency to assist JeffCo taxpayers and to keep our County and special districts funded to provide vital services. The virus has affected taxpayers physically, mentally, and financially. Many citizens have lost their jobs, their businesses and/or have been furloughed causing a financial strain on personal budgets. Thanks to House Bill 20-1421 and Senate Bill 21-279, which I supported and testified on, my department and I worked with taxpayers in 2020 and 2021 on waiving interest on late payments and accepting payment plans on property taxes for residential and commercial properties.

We made every effort to assist property owners in paying their property taxes in JeffCo. In 2020, my department distributed CARES Act Funds and other COVID grants to local businesses and non-profits based on the criteria from the federal government and the Jefferson County Commissioners. I will continue to support and work with taxpayers and our special districts in 2022 and beyond. We are all in this together. Let’s do our best to protect each other and each other’s mental and financial health in 2022 – shop local and live local.

Outdoor Property Tax Drop Box at the Taj - Attempted TheftJefferson County Treasurer Jerry DiTullio has closed the property tax payment drop box located on the outside of the Jefferson County Administration and Court Facility. The drop box was tampered with on the evening of Tuesday, April 9, in an attempted theft of payment checks. The checks in the drop box were not accessed and the drop box was not breached.“The perpetrators tried to drill out the lock twice in one night. I have decided that the risk to taxpayers associated with any potential theft of tax payments and fraud against taxpayers is too significant to ignore,” said Treasurer DiTullio. “My department has closed and locked the external drop box to prevent any further public access. Plans are underway to have the drop box permanently removed by our facilities team.”More information here: www.jeffco.us/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=2208 ... See MoreSee Less

Success Stories

Fiscal Transparency

The new Treasurer’s Office financial reporting system, which includes the General Fund, Treasurer’s Budget and Quarterly Investment Portfolio, is now available on the JeffCo Treasurer’s webpage under “Financial Reports” and “Treasurer’s Notes”.

Efficiency

I have reduced the Treasurer’s Office expenses by $107,000 in 2020 and by $100,000 in 2021. Beginning in 2020, to save taxpayer dollars on mailings (and some trees), my office mails out one, not two, annual Property Tax Notices. We continually cross-train within the Treasurer/Public Trustee Department to enhance customer service for the

Customer Service

Our office is making every effort to have phone calls answered by a live person, and to return all voicemails by the end of the same business day. Our office hours have been adjusted to 7:30 am – 5:00 pm. We have also added a “Chat” function on the JeffCo Treasurer webpage.

Breaking Down Silos

The Treasurer’s Office is communicating with the public, the County Commissioners and other JeffCo departments more than ever before. Additionally, the Treasurer’s Office is supporting the Clerk & Recorder and the Sheriff’s Office with banking services and internal financial services, such as money orders for the County Clerk’s Office for passports. See Treasurers Notes or Financial Reports

Public Trustee Duties

I have assumed additional duties and staff as the Public Trustee pursuant to HB 19-1295. Commencing on July 1, 2020, the County Treasurer for each Class 2 county (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Douglas, El Paso, Jefferson, Larimer, Mesa, Pueblo and Weld) became the Public Trustee for their county. For more information, please see the JeffCo Public Trustee webpage.

I am pleased to endorse Jerry DiTullio for re-election as our Jefferson County Treasurer. Jerry is a true public servant who brings fiscal transparency to the Treasurer’s Office. Jerry is always prioritizing the needs of JeffCo taxpayers and our special districts. We need Jerry back in the Treasurer’s Office.
