Taxes levied on real and personal property are a perpetual lien on the property without respect to ownership and have priority over all liens until they are paid in full. The buyer and seller must settle who is responsible for the tax liability. Generally, at the closing the title company will collect a pro rata share of the current year's taxes from the seller and credit it to the buyer. Please review your closing papers. Call us for more information at (970) 453-3440 or send an email to Treasurer@summitcountyco.gov.

Your property now has a lien on it, meaning an investor purchased a lien by paying your delinquent property taxes at our annual sale. The investor will now earn interest off of this lien through a tax rate set by statute. The lien on your property can be redeemed at any time with the required forms completed and a certified fund payment. Additional fees will apply. Call us at (970) 453 – 3440 or email Treasurer@summitcountyco.gov to learn more about the redemption process and for updated amounts.
