The County Treasurer’s office is located in Room 103 of the County Courthouse located at 925 6th Street in Del Norte, CO 81132. Our mailing address is P.O. Box 129, Del Norte, CO 81132. We can be reached by telephone at 719-657-2747. Our email address is rgtreas@riograndecounty.org Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. The office is open during the lunch hour. The office is closed for legal holidays set by the Board of County Commissioners.

Tax notices are mailed to the last known address during the third week in January (approximately). Taxes are collected for the previous year, i.e. 2016 tax is payable in 2017. Delinquent notices go out the first week in July.

Taxes are payable in one lump sum due April 30 or in two equal installments due February 28 and June 15. If payment deadlines are not met, interest is charged at the rate of 1% per month. (Per Colorado revised Statutes). Unpaid balances as of September 30 are subject to advertising in the Monte Vista Journal, the cost of which is payable with the delinquent tax and interest. Unpaid amounts at the time of the annual tax lien sale in November will be subject to that sale. There is a three year redemption period for the owner from the date of the sale.

Acceptable forms of payment to the Treasurer are cash, checks, cashier’s check, money orders and credit cards (excluding American Express). 
On line credit card payments are available. Any checks returned as insufficient will be assessed a $50.00 short check fee.

Your tax notice should be mailed to you even if you escrow taxes with your lender. In most cases they contact us directly for tax amounts for their customers.

If you purchased property during the year, please check your closing statement for allocation of the taxes. The purchaser should receive subsequent tax notices as they come due after the closing and is responsible for taxes from that point forward. If you receive a tax notice and no longer own the property, 
contact the Treasurer’s office, 719-657-2747.

Questions regarding the calculation of your tax or the value placed on your property should be directed to the 
Rio Grande County Assessor, 719-657-3326.

The fee for a release of deed of trust is $28.00, 1 page. ($5.00 for each additional page). The deposit to start a foreclosure is $650.00.

Public Trustee sales are held on Wednesday mornings. The Monte Vista Journal is used for all legal publications.
