Please be aware that the delay due to legislative changes does not alter the first-half payment due date for property taxes on February 29, 2024. The Colorado Legislature chose not to extend the payment deadline to ensure that special districts like fire departments, school districts, and other public entities have the revenue to continue to operate.
