SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County Treasurer’s Office has completed mailing property tax notices to over 38,000 owners for 2021 property taxes to be collected in 2022.

“By law, we are required to mail tax notices to the owner of record. If your mortgage company is responsible for submitting payment, we also communicate directly with mortgage lenders and servicers to provide updated account information,” said Ryne Scholl, Treasurer and Public Trustee of Summit County.

The Treasurer is responsible for the collection and distribution of all Summit County property taxes and will collect $146 million for 30 local taxing authorities across 42 jurisdictions: 39% schools, 33% local governments, 18% fire protection, and 6% metropolitan/water districts. 

“In 2022, the average county mill rate increased by 3% from 66.88 mills to 68.67 mills," said Scholl. “Seventeen jurisdictions saw a decrease in their mill levy rate while twenty five saw an increase.”

Scholl encourages owners to visit the Treasurer’s website for all of your property tax needs as well as to view a new video tutorial for online payments.

The Treasurer’s office, located in the Old County Courthouse in Breckenridge, is open and available Monday-Friday 8:00-5:00 by phone, email, and online chat. Payment and interest information is available by calling the Treasurer’s office at 970-453-3440, or by email at
