Overdue property tax statements have been mailed

Overdue property tax notices for 2021 that are due in 2022 have been mailed out, according to Routt County Treasurer Lane Iacovetto.

Taxpayers who submitted their tax payment after July 1 may still receive an overdue return in the mail due to print and mail processing time.

Per state law, homeowners who have yet to pay their taxes and submit payment for the first half began accruing late payment interest beginning May 1. Owners who submitted payment for the first half but did not submit payment for the second half started earning late payment interest on June 16.

According to Iacovetto, all funds received from mortgage companies were processed and posted at this time.

Additionally, the Routt County tax lien online sale is scheduled for October 28. Online registration for interested bidders must be completed between October 1 and October 22 at Routt.ColoradoTaxSale.com.

There are several ways to pay property tax. They can be paid online until August 31 by credit card, debit card or electronic check. Owners can also mail their payments to the Routt County Treasurer, 522 Lincoln Ave. Suite 22, Steamboat Springs, CO 80487, or drop off payments at the 24 hour drop box at 522 Lincoln Ave. at Steamboat.

To ensure payments are credited correctly, owners should quote their schedule number on their check and include their payment coupons. You can find more information about these options at CO.Routt.co.us/213/Property-Tax.
