Can County Treasurers Lower or Waive Your Property Tax?

Hello JeffCo,

Every tax year I receive a few calls from taxpayers asking the County Treasurer to lower or waive their property taxes for various reasons. The County Treasurer does not have the legal authority to lower property taxes or waive property taxes per state law.

The Treasurer’s Office and the state of Colorado do have programs available for seniors or people with disabilities. More information is available on these programs at the following link:

If you believe your property has been incorrectly valued or classified, you may can also file an appeal with the County Assessor. For information on this process, please view this link:

Thank you!
