Redemption Information

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS FOR REAL PROPERTY ONLY!

Redemption Payment is made to the Treasurer for the amount of delinquent taxes, delinquent interest, advertising fees, any late fee, and any other additional costs incurred during the tax lien process.  Payments will only be accepted from the owner, his agent, or any other person having a legal or equitable claim by a holder of a tax lien sale certificate against the property at any time before the execution of a Treasurer's Deed (CRS 39-12-103(1)).  If an application for a Treasurer's Deed has been accepted, additional fees, called Deed costs, may be due upon redemption.  (Please see Treasurer's Deed for additional information regarding the deed process.)  Click here if you would like to see the Application Information.

ALL REDEMPTION PAYMENTS MUST BE MADE BY CASH, WIRE OR CERTIFIED FUNDS

Interest is calculated on a monthly basis.  Therefore, the amount due changes monthly.  If mailed, postmarks are NOT acceptable.  The Commissioner of Banking establishes the annual rate of redemption interest based on nine points above the Federal discount rate.  The interest rate is set September 1st and becomes effective on October 1st of the same year. 

In Order To Make Payment  You must call the Treasurer's Office at 303-582-5222 and request the "Projected Redemption Amounts."  This form is located by the assessed owner's schedule number; an example of a schedule number would be R004560.  The Projected Redemption Form must be signed by the qualifying person as stated above.  If that is someone other than the owner, you must provide legal proof of claim.  The signed Projected Redemption Form and proper currency must be in the Treasurer's Office on or before the last working day of the month.

Upon payment, the Treasurer shall issue a Certificate of Redemption.  The Certificate includes the legal description of the tract of land redeemed, the date of redemption and the amount paid.  The Certificate will be mailed to the party making payment. 

If you would like further information about the redemption process, please contact the Treasurer's Office at 303-582-5222.
