Treasurer



2021 payable 2022 property tax notices were mailed on January 18, 2022.

Important Mill Levy Information on Tax Notices:

The Treasurer's office was notified that the mill levy information printed on the 2021 property tax notices printed as a running total instead of the actual mill levy for each taxing entity.  This is a printing error only.  All other information on your property tax notice is correct including, but not limited to, the amount of taxes due.  If you would like to see the actual mill levy by taxing entity, please click on the link at the left of this page labeled property tax inquiry and view property tax.  Sign in as a public user, enter your account number/search/click on your property.  You will see printable images on the left, print the statement of taxes due report.  You can also call our office and we can email a duplicate notice.

I sincerely apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused.


If you own property in Elbert County and you do not receive a property tax notice, please call our office as soon as possible (303) 621-3120.  Failure to receive a notice does not invalidate property owner’s responsibility of paying taxes on time.

 

Important due dates:

 

1st Half Payment - February 28, 2022

2nd Half Payment - June 15, 2022

Full Payment – April 30, 2022

 

If the due date falls on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday or any day our office is closed, your payment shall be deemed timely received if received and/or postmarked on the next regular business day.  Postmarks are accepted for current year taxes only.  Delinquent taxes must be paid with certified funds and in our office the last working day of the month for valid interest amounts.

 

Important note:  We would like to encourage all property owners to pay taxes online if possible.  This will cut down on traffic in the Samuel Elbert Building, but mostly paying online ensures your payment is timely received and does not get lost in the mail.   If needs be, you may also drop your payment in the drop box on the east side of the building.  Current year property taxes paid on line at www.elbertcounty-co.gov.  Click the radio button Pay Taxes Online.

 

The Elbert County Treasurer is required by law to send the tax notice to the owner of record.  If your mortgage company pays your taxes, you will need to forward a copy of your bill to them to ensure accurate payment information.  We do not automatically send them a copy.

 

Please check the back of your property tax notice for other important information.
