Property Taxes at a Glance: Highest and Lowest by County


If you live in Denver proper, you bottom out - a good kind of bottoming out - because you've got the lowest amount of property taxes in the metro area, according to Aldo Svaldi with the Denver Post.

Contrast that with some other metro area counties, such as Broomfield (home of Ciancio Ciancio Brown, P.C.) and Adams, which have some of the highest property taxes in the state.

Bear in mind, though, that almost no matter where you live in Colorado, you live in a state that fairs well against others when it comes to property taxes in general (though Svaldi points out that actual property taxes vary widely from county to county in Colorado).

"Colorado homeowners pay a much smaller share of home values," Svaldi writes, "in property taxes on average than almost any other state - $1,179 a year or 0.632 percent of assessed property value..."

Compare that with the national average, which is $2,224.

It turns out, though, that not only are Colorado's property taxes quite low, but that the state is fairly "efficient" in its use of taxes in terms of what homeowners/residents get in return, such as good schools and the relative absence of crime. On that note, Denver County ranked first in Colorado and 24th nationally.
