You have a choice of paying your property taxes in full or in two equal payments. If you choose to pay in full, that payment is due by April 30th. If you choose to pay in equal installments, the first payment is due by the last day of February, and the second payment is due by June 15th. You may pay in person at the Treasurer’s Office located at 501 Palmer Street, Suite 202, in Delta or at the County Annex Building, 196 W. Hotchkiss Avenue, Hotchkiss, or you may mail your payment to the Delta County Treasurer, 501 Palmer Street, Suite 202, Delta, CO 81416. United States Postal Service postmark is accepted for payment deadlines. We accept cash, checks, money orders, cashier’s checks, or certified funds. Be aware, however, that correct change may not always be available at the County Annex Building. Credit card or e-check payment may be made through Official Payments Corp. at 1-800-272-9829 or visit www.officialpayments.com. Use jurisdiction code 1609. A convenience processing fee applies.
By state statute, there is a 1% late fee charged for each month the property taxes are late. The first week of September, manufactured home and personal property taxes that are unpaid shall be advertised in the local newspaper. Unpaid real estate taxes will be advertised in September/October for three consecutive weeks. Taxes that remain unpaid are subject to sale at the property tax lien sale, which is generally held the first Thursday in November.
Note: There are additional fees added to your tax bill if your property is advertised. Manufactured homes and personal property are also subject to a distraint notice, which shall be posted at/on the delinquent property. This notification defines the delinquent property, the amount due, and payment instructions. Distrained property shall not be moved or sold until the taxes are paid. The distraint posting will also generate additional fees which shall be included as "Fees" on the posted notice.
If the investor who purchased the tax lien at the annual tax lien sale holds that lien for three years following the date of purchase, they are eligible to apply for a Treasurer’s Deed. If a Treasurer’s Deed is issued, you will lose the ownership of your property. The Treasurer’s Office does its due diligence to contact property owners during the Treasurer’s Deed process. You have the right to redeem the tax lien on your property at any time after the sale until a Treasurer’s Deed is issued. Note: Manufactured homes that are located on property that is not owned by the property owner shall be eligible for a Certificate of Ownership after one year.
