What can be done to lower your property taxes?

Douglas County hosts Taxing Authorities Summit, 4-6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 25

Posted on September 21, 2023 2023News and Events


Did you know there are more than 300 entities that levy taxes on residential properties in Douglas County? They’ve all been invited to discuss ways to mitigate the impact that this year’s historic property reassessment is having on you.

The Board of Douglas County Commissioners, Assessor Toby Damisch and Treasurer Dave Gill have invited representatives from all taxing authorities to a Taxing Authorities Summit, from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 25. You can listen in online, by phone or in person at the Philip S. Miller Building, 100 Third St. in Castle Rock. The meeting will also be recorded for later viewing on the County’s YouTube channel.

To join online, visit the Taxing Authorities Summit webpage. A link to watch will be posted on Sunday, Sept. 24. Join via phone by calling 833-380-0668, or simply answer the phone when we call to invite you to join us. To receive a call just before a Live Town Hall begins, visit douglas.co.us/townhall to register.

The results of this year’s state-mandated reappraisal were the most significant and impactful in Colorado history. At the same time, several pending ballot measures create added complexity to this year’s financial modeling for the taxing authorities.

This Taxing Authorities Summit is an opportunity for taxing districts – such as metro districts, the library district, school district, fire districts and others – to get their district’s guide for calculating mill levies and related assessed valuation information under various modeled and actual scenarios. It’s also an opportunity for all taxing authorities – including Douglas County – to further discuss mitigation efforts for residents.

Learn more about the summit on our webpage. For additional information on this year’s reassessment, check out the Property Tax playlist on the County’s YouTube channel.

Live Town Halls are an opportunity to learn about a topic and ask questions of a panel. The panel will take questions from attendees in the live audience, on the phone and online.
